I often find myself defending doctors on the cancer hotline. Not so much defending as reassuring desperately frightened people that the doctor needs a clear pathology before they can make good decisions; what works amazingly well for one thing may have no effect on a very similar condition. Part of this I "blame" on the culture of the medical community as well. Many doctors actively avoid admitting doubt and confusion. I understand why. But what is, IS. Your second career is vital. My oncologist likes to send his medical students [as their preceptor] into my waiting room to visit with me. I love their fresh enthusiasm, their brilliant intellects and their curiosity about my medical history, which doesn't fit well into anybody's textbook. I tell them that, while I know they have far too much to do, they really would profit from a visit to your web site.
