I liken it to the idea that I was taught when I used to attend church which is that God already knows who is going to be saved and how they will come to him. Now my first thought upon hearing this was "why bother with repenting for my sins or living a god fearing life if God already knows whether or not I will be saved? Nothing i do it going to change what has already been predetermined."
And the reality of both situations is that it all depends on your belief system. If you choose to believe that destiny or God or fate determines how your life plays out then you will make all your decisions based on that belief. On the other hand, if you believe that you control your life then all your decisions will be made based on your choice of control.
Ultimately it all boils down to the simple fact that you are going to make whatever choice you want based on your feelings and desires at the time.

if it is - you go to doctor, if not - you sure better don't go
(maybe doctor will broke your leg or do something else upon you)
lazy-bone paradox is opposite of barber paradox.
you can use it in same way
if patient will not put doctor in your destiny (to help/kill him), better don't go there.
if barber will not convince villagers they need to be shaved, better don't go there.

The way you made things out was that if destiny does exist then basically we're all pointless, the whole world is pointless and that we have no choice in anyhting because something/someone has already planned it and we are just entertainment for this person/thing. But that means that everything we feel is made up and the whole world is just a big game to this person/thing. Like we're toys who never see our owner and think that our actions are of our own doing.
But if you think about how much we feel and how complicated life is it just proves that the world can't be a figment of another person/things imagination. You make it out as if the world is just some thoughts in some other person/thing's head but that's impossible. There's just too much going on for it all to be made up.
So I disagree with you on the whole destiny thing but I do believe in it. I think that destiny is like one of those conterfit coin puzzles.When explaining your answer you need to explain what if's...
eg. 1.Weigh Coins ABCD vs EFGH. If they balance go to 2. If they don't go to 2.2. and so on and so on.
So I, personally, believe that destiny depends on what you think and how you feel and what you do. If the doctor isn't bothered and just wants to finish his/her shift and doesn't do his/her best to help you then mabye you'll get beter maybe you won't but the doctor will have to pay if things don't work out. Destiny will make sure of that and destiny may reward you later for trying! However if you don't even bother on going to the doctor, if you give up on the doctor before you even visit him/her then you've got no chance of avoiding destiny. Destiny will make you pay. If you give up on everything without looking for a bright side and without even trying then destiny won't reward you! If you give up then destiny will give up on you.

It "knows" that you will go to the doctors for medicine.
