Med­i­cal ar­ro­gance

Townsville Bulletin - - Voice Of The North -

ONE of my neph­ews is a top sur­geon in Amer­ica. He treats his pa­tients and their fam­i­lies with kind­ness and re­spect. It doesn’t take much in­tel­li­gence to see that all of this in­stills con­fi­dence and pro­motes heal­ing. I hope that Chan­nel 10 axes the pro­gram House as soon as pos­si­ble be­cause this tele­vi­sion show per­pet­u­ates the cul­ture of ar­ro­gance and rude­ness among some mem­bers of the med­i­cal pro­fes­sion who have ob­vi­ously in­spired the char­ac­ter of Dr House. I have just come home from a short stay in the hos­pi­tal and vis­its from my ‘ spe­cial­ists’ so I’m full of it.

JOHN J. AN­DER­SEN, Heat­ley.
