THE FAMILY DOCTOR.
Must Know Patients as Well as an
Engineer Knows His Engine.
| In his inaugu^.1 address before the
I American Medical Association the
president of thal great orgimzation,
Dr. Herlert I.. Burrell, of Boston, cal
led attention to the revival of faith in
the family doctor.
There was a time not many years
ago ,wh<A the solemnity and preten
sions of any Quack who chose to call
himself a- practitioner were accepted
as full proofs of wisdom. With grow
ing intelligence among the people and
raising of standards in the medical
profession, there was ^ weeding out o
empirics on the one side and a flight
to high-priced specialists on the other
Now that the fit survivals of these
two movements, by much faithful
skillful, and sympathetic work have
brought to the general practitione
deserved honor, it is doubtless true
that the family physician isHhe most
potent agency for the general spread
of knowledge to prevent bodily ills.
There'should be no mystery made
of sickness, as Dr. Burrell wisely says,
“The trouble Is,’he declares, “that
we all consider ourselves <is^peculiar
examples of some disease, when, as
a matter of fact, all we need is the
counsel and, advice of some sound
minded family practitioner, who has
known us and our families for many
It is, of course, the doctor’s duty
to know his patients at least as thor
oughly as a locomotive engineer knov
his engine Having learned the'phys
ical, mental, and temperamental weak
spots of eachr it is his duty as a con
scientious man of science to guard
them from strain and to set the pa
patlentor the patient’s natural protect
or to guarding them also. The timely
word rather than the bolus or drench
should preserve the health of the fan
ily doctor's charges. ;
The doctor of to-day, with liis en
thuiaslasm for good work, may be re
iied upon to point the way to health
without regard to his own pecuniary
advantage. Let us hope that before ma
ny more years he will be paid for his
skill in keeping people well no les.
readily than he is now paid for resto
log them to health after they have
fallen sick.^—Chicago News. .
