What are the qualities we, as providers, should remember and exhibit in the modern shockwave practice?
On this cold fall afternoon, I take reprieve in front of my fireplace and make recommendation of this New York Times Bestseller: Dr. Mütter’s Marvals, by Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz
A physician should be an ambitious man.
”To say to a young man ‘be not ambitious,’ is to say to him live the life of a drone. If ambition were a sin, is it probable that a wise Creator would have endowed nine-tenths of his people with it? The love of praise is so congenial to our nature, and so powerful a spur to every undertaking, that the moral world would be a chaos without its animating influences. It is like the sun; it gives life and heat to all around.”
The medical man must obtain a thorough medical education.
”To secure true eminence, not popularity, not notoriety, not the distinction that friendly or family influence or wealth may for a time confer, the medical man must, as the first and most important requisite, obtain a thorough medical education. But I would caution you against attempting eminence in any other department of science: One science only will one genius fit, So vast is art, so narrow human wit.”
