Halaman 452 - ... when he does receive them, he should never converse on the subject of his disease, as an observation may be made, without any intention of interference. which may destroy his confidence in the course he is pursuing, and induce him to neglect the directions prescribed to him. A patient should never send for a consulting physician without the express consent of his own medical attendant.
Halaman 453 - There is no profession, from the members of which greater purity of character, and a higher standard of moral excellence are required, than the medical ; and to attain such eminence, is a duty every physician owes alike to his profession and to his patients.

Halaman 454 - ... suffer such publications to be made; to invite laymen to be present at operations, to boast of cures and remedies, to adduce certificates of skill and success, or to perform any other similar acts. These are the ordinary practices of empirics, and are highly reprehensible in a regular physician.
