I believe my job as a physician is to find and classify each disease of my patient, prescribe the proper medicine, or recommend the appropriate surgical procedure. The patient’s responsibility is to take the medicine I prescribe and follow my recommendations. I believe that man’s body and mind are separate and that disease occurs either in the mind or in the body. I see no relationship of the mind to the disease of the body. Medical disease (“real” or “organic” disease) is caused by a single physi-cochemical defect such as by invasion of the body by a foreign agent (virus, bacterium, or toxin) or from some metabolic derangement arising within the body.
