Bronchitis or else?

YANAD etcetc but I've had a nasty cough for 3 weeks. Finally I went to the doctor. After a 4 minute auscultation, he said I have bronchitis and he prescribed antibiotics.

Of course I googled, and apparently bronchitis is viral so antibiotics shouldn't be prescribed. Is my doctor an ass or do I have pneumonia and he didn't tell me? I hate antibiotics, esp. if I don't really need them. But I started the cycle yesterday. Can I just ditch them?
