Im pretty sure it's legal for purposes of comment/discussion/teaching to quote or even repost things posted on the public internet. Dr Amy has also blogged the same post.
I'm not sure it's legally a breech of patient confidentiality if you're discussing a person who isn't your own patient. (In the same regard, my lawyer friend could give her legal opinion on a case she isn't involved in but that the participants had posted about online; she obviously couldn't do the same if she was a lawyer in the case.)
