Worth Repeating
“Why is the most aggressive treatment becoming the standard of care? We know that when patients are given a choice between surgery and a medical treatment, they almost always opt for the least invasive, least aggressive treatment.”

Rita Redberg, editor of the Archives of Internal Medicine, as reported in The New York Times
