Physician, heal thyself

  • It grieves me that health care has become the for-profit beast - health care in the USA is a failure; it doesn't work for us as a people - it is operating where the healing arts should not be subjected - in the world of business.
  • I think it stinks that medical students (with or without trust funds) suffer the financial burden of their education. I believe that burden opens the door for their fledgling ethics to walk out and disappear into the world of hustle and dough, leaving healing behind wondering what happened to its artist.
  • We're all going to die. Medicine has not yet become sophisticated enough to stop that last action. My hope is that the Medical Arts will become a revolutionary force and that healing will move to the vanguard, beyond the concerns of Profit and Loss, to fight for the dignity of the ailing patient.
