"In order for *ts to look busy, I decided, "the phone must ring much more often.

"Mrs. Parker?" he would glibly mprovise while Freda giggled on end. "That's too bad. A undred three, you mean four? 'ry some of that medicine I left ast time and I'll be there in the inrning." Or else he would say, "Mrs, ones? Yes, What's that? Right ide pain? Sounds like appendix fou don't say. I'll be right over. And in this script he would gei up, take his bag, lerwe the house nd ride five times around the jlock in his cnr. Upon his victorious return, h would be greeted by a barrage o nedical questions, and it was actu. illy startling and fascinating, even o me, to hear detailed accounts o .he different, nonexistent case re ports, almost as if he were day dreaming aloud. A perfect Freud n wish fulfillment indeed! But though our action bar some truit in that occasionally well impressed visitor would tur up in the office as a patient, o sometimes refer a more distan relative, the strain of perpetuatin the farce, combined with the de grading feeling o( shoddines proved within two weeks to be to much. One night, we were in the mid of our telephone routine, when th entire system collapsed. "Mr Parker?" John began as usuu "That's too bad.

Of course, the icdern trend toward speciali?.a- on is old hat. Oripjnally, a specialist was a cneral praclilinner who became a rue expert in a choSen field. His olc was that of consultant only, 0 bo rallwi in at the discretion ol he attending physician in cases where his extra skill was required >ccnusc of a difficult, technical Tocodure involved, or a problem liagrujsis. Today, it may sometimes be » young fellow [ike Bob, who knows illle about medicine in general, ind just slightly more about his specialty in particular, btil is guided in his work by a love of greater prestige, higher pay and :cwcr working hours, while it is public itself thai is left holding the bag. Under an erroneous assumption of getting the "very best care." they cheat themselves the psychological benefit of confidence and faith in a tarnily physician, who is familiar -with them and their problems, and settle for impersonal attention. "Bob Abbott," I exclaimed, "you sound like a prospective slock broker, not a doctor. It's shocking!" "Nonsense," said Bob earnestly, 'Tin only being holiest, instead of talking high human motives like the stuffed shirts at the hospital. And even if they don't admit it in plain English, it stiU adds up ttic same."
