A profession of fighting

That’s how the Angry Pharmacist describes pharmacy, and he inadvertantly describes the practice of medicine at the same time.  As far back as my interviews for medical school I did notice how curiously confrontational medicine seemed to be.  Even now, 15 years later, there is a constant feeling of being in combat not simply against disease and injury but against patients, insurance companies, the government, the legal system, the media, and even at times other physicians.
