The doctor should be opaque to his patients and, like a mirror, should show them nothing but what is shown to him.
Surgeons must be very careful
When they take the knife!
Underneath their fine incisions
Stirs the Culprit — Life!
He’s a Fool that makes his Doctor his Heir.
God heals, and the Doctor takes the Fees.
Beware of the young doctor and the old barber.
