Description

Most Americans have grown up having the utmost respect for the medical profession and what it has accomplished over the decades. The family doctor who could fix anything became a fixture in our society. If “doc” said you needed something, then that is what you got. People not only didn’t worry about the their healthcare, they didn’t think about it! The physician became almost “infallible” in his or her opinions or actions. It was almost like the situation seen in the film “The Wizard of Oz.” What the Wizard ordered was to be done. The system seemed to work just fine. Then came along Dorothy and her darling doggie Toto.

During their visit to the Wizard’s place of wizardry, Toto’s curiosity drove him to pull back the curtain, revealing the Wizard as just an ordinary, albeit educated, man whose views and opinions were not always infallible. In the case of the medical profession, the pulling back of “the curtain” has not been such a rapid and shocking event. It has taken place over time.
