This makes me wonder what a physician's place in the modern world is. Given a set of symptoms a layman can do an internet search and find the most common condition fitting those symptoms, and also find a list of treatments. I guess physicians are supposed to be objective, but you could get a lawyer to do that. The prescribing of drugs could be done by a pharmacist.

If all you are going to do is apply a statistical model to your patients, you should probably be replaced by a computer.

I guess surgeons have a useful skill.

It's so crazy, it might just work!"
