Our love for medicine

In 2014 Dr. Daniel Craviotto, an orthopedic surgeon in California, wrote an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal that declared his independence from forces that would undermine the sacred patient-doctor relationship.  The piece went viral, with over 1400 comments.  And it helped lead to the formation of Let My Doctor Practice, a movement to provide a [...]
