Distinguished Physician: “I Hate Hospitals”

Dr. James Armitage is a leading lymphoma physician.  His honesty in the passage below, is refreshing.  But instead of it being viewed as a personality quirk of the physician, it should be viewed as one more reason to reform how our medical system is organized.

 

"I hate hospitals. I like working in them; I just don’t like being a patient."

 

Armitage, as quoted in:

MICHAEL KELLY.  "Michael Kelly: Doc lacks patience for being a patient."  Omaha World-Herald  (Thursday November 16, 2006):    1B.
