Words Of Wisdom by Dr Hegde

Words Of Wisdom by Dr Hegde: "Clinicians can not afford to avoid uncertainty or pass it off as inherent aspect of the art of medicine. Certainty is a delusion-only uncertainty is certain......this must be acknowledged and addressed explicitly, especially in clinical training, if reason is to be used most effectively to improve the quality and cost effectiveness of clinical practice.'" And the sooner patients realise this, the better. Smart patients have realistic expectations. They know what is in their hands; what's in the doctor's hands - and finally, what is in God's hands ! You can read the entire book, which is a collection of thoughtful essays on health and medicine by Dr Hegde, at this site.
