Marcia Millman

  • Indeed, doctors argue that medicine is an 'art' rather than a science. And naturally, it is much more difficult for physician-peers to criticize and evaluate each other's 'artistic' judgments and performances than it would be for them to hold each other responsible for conforming to standard practices in objectively measured situations.

  • Indeed, the very definition of what constitutes a medical mistake is carefully controlled by doctors.

  • Keeping the patient uninformed and closing ranks with regard to information are two of the ways that doctors limit the power and autonomy of patients.

  • Just as physicians have regulated medical practice to maximize their autonomy and profits, so will the giant corporations and their administrators use the health industry to build up power and profits.

  • Our health care system will not truly serve the needs and welfare of the public until it is separated from profitmaking enterprises.
