Excerpt from A Doctor's Confession It has been the author's intention to present facts and relate incidents with a View to promoting a better understand ing between the physician and the laity, as well as to furnish entertainment and amusement for the general reader. A greater degree of justice would obtain it the people had a more accurate knowledge of what may reasonably be expected of the physician. It should be understood that there are some things about human ailments and their cure that the medical profession know, and some things they do not know; but the training of the masses has been such as to make it detrimental to a physician's reputation and business if he acknowledge ignorance concerning a case he may have under his care. This puts the honest, though well qualified physi cian, at a disadvantage and encourages deception. Advice is sometimes worth more than medicine, and very often is all that is necessary.
