Treating illnesses is why we became doctors. Treating patients is what makes most doctors miserable.

Doctors are like crows. When you see two or three of them gathered together, you know there is a death in the offing, and they are discussing it. With the crows, they are deciding which parts to tear open and make off with, and so it is with the doctors.
