Surgeon vs. Pathologist – “I didn’t want to bias you”

| August 27, 2010

This is exactly why society needs the Internet and the tools to create your own movies.  Tim Berners-Lee predicted this himself.  With that being said, remember, "any similarities to real people or events are purely coincidental."

"I want to know the answer now." 

"…I always tell the residents how important pathology is…by the way I sent you an interesting mediastinal mass last week…" (to a GI pathologist) and the best ones:

"I didn't want to bias you", "the patient is in the recovery room" and "don't go home".

Anybody ever hear any of these from a surgeon requesting a frozen?

    To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible. Do you think so?
