Lipitor and Grapefruit

I take 10 mg. of Lipitor in the evening.
I've heard you should'nt mix Lipitor with any kind of grapefruit product, so I asked the pharmacist since I am on such a low dose if I could eat an
occasional grapefruit. She said absolutely not.
Ok, so then I asked my doctor and he said the pharmacist was exaggerating and to go ahead and eat a grapefruit, just not a bushel of them.
So who is right?
The pharmacist or the doctor?
