That’s why they call it the practice of medicine” “Look in the mirror and see who you are… then exploit the strengths and minimize the weaknesses.”“If you don’t learn the business, you are going to be delegated to the assembly line.” “Doctors who only know how to diagnose and treat patients will be treated as a commodity in the coming century.” “He or she who controls the money, controls the system.” Book Suggestions:
