Doctors are men who prescribe medicines of which they know little, to cure diseases of which they know less in human beings of whom they know nothing. - Voltaire
The headline reads, "Docs say patients make them prescribe useless antibiotics." This puts a physician in roughly the same predicament as a serial killer. The latter says, "Stop me before I kill again, while the former says, "Stop me before I prescribe again."
Just as it would be madness to settle on medical treatment for the body of a person by taking an opinion poll of the neighbors, so it is irrational to prescribe for the body politic by polling the opinions of the people at large. - Plato
Four out of five doctors prescribe baseball for whatever ails you. The fifth guy is a quack. - Tom Swyers
Successful men follow the same advice they prescribe for others.
