Sage Sayings of Dr. Andrew Taylor Still

" All God's works, spiritual and material, are harmonious. His laws of animal life was absolute. So wise a God had certainly placed the remedy within the material house in which the spirit of life dwells. With this thought I trimmed my sails and launched my craft as an explorer."

Truhlar, Robert E. Doctor A.T. Still in the living. Chagrin Falls, Ohio, 1950. P.135

Book Review

Today's physicians are faced with reams of insurance and legal-related paperwork, the constant threat of malpractice, and a burgeoning patient population. Despite these obstacles, some physicians enter the profession with deeply held convictions, hopes, and idealism, and go on to excel not just as medical doctors, but as human beings. Characteristics of Compassion: Portraits of Exemplary Physicians by Helen Meldrum uncovers what sets these outstanding doctors apart from their peers to inspire other medical professionals and their patients. ISBN: 978-0-7637-5733-5, 277 pages, $22.95.
