Excerpt from Transactions of the First Annual Meeting of the Kentucky State Medical Society: Held in the City of Frankfort, on the First Day of October, 1851
Every duty or obligation implies, both in equity and for its successful discharge, a corresponding right. As it is the duty of a physician to advise, so has he a right to be attentively and respectfully listened to. Being required to expose his health and life for the benefit of the community, he has a just claim, in return, on all its members, collectively and individually, for aid to carry out his measures, and for all possible tenderness and regard to prevent needlessly harassing calls on his services and unnecessary exhaustion of his benevolent sympathies.
His zeal, talents, attainments and skill are qualities which he holds in trust for the general good, and which cannot be prodigally spent, either through his 0 negligence or the inconsiderateness of others, without wrong and detriment both to himself and to them.
