Guy Burgess

Unfortunately, it seems to me that when it comes to issues affecting the trans community, most people who are cisgender – a word describing those people whose gender identity is in alignment with the sex they were assigned at birth – focus too much on the administrative, legal, and medical aspects of trans identity.

Chelsea Manning

I’m old enough to remember when the polio vaccine was still new. Also, it hadn’t been that long since most people who caught pneumonia died from it. These medical breakthroughs were practically miracles.

Eva Vertes

I might have been just as happy to have been a practicing primary-care doctor. But as a medical student, I had interacted with patients suffering from neurodegeneration or acute clinical schizophrenia. It left an indelible mark on my memory.

Nayef Al-Rodhan

I think it’s a very valuable thing for a doctor to learn how to do research, to learn how to approach research, something there isn’t time to teach them in medical school. They don’t really learn how to approach a problem, and yet diagnosis is a problem; and I think that year spent in research is extremely valuable to them.

Gertrude B. Elion

I was reading about all of these medical and psychological experimental programs that the government and various intelligence agencies had run throughout the 20th century. Any book you can read on that, there’s some really horrifying and fascinating stuff that goes on there.

Baruj Benacerraf

My interest was directed, from my medical student days, to Immunology, and particularly to the mechanism of hypersensitivity. I had suffered from bronchial asthma as a child and had developed a deep curiosity in allergic phenomena.

Baruj Benacerraf

In 1970, Dean Robert Ebert offered me the Chair of Pathology at Harvard Medical School. I moved to Harvard because I missed the university environment and, more particularly, the stimulating interaction with the eager, enthusiastic, and unprejudiced young minds of the students and fellows.

Baruj Benacerraf

The physicians of one class feel the patients and go away, merely prescribing medicine. As they leave the room they simply ask the patient to take the medicine. They are the poorest class of physicians.

Stephen Ambrose

I’m strongly for a patient Bill of Rights. Decisions ought to be made by doctors, not accountants.

Marie Osmond

The great secret of doctors, known only to their wives, but still hidden from the public, is that most things get better by themselves; most things, in fact, are better in the morning.

Lewis Thomas

A pregnant woman facing the most dire circumstances must be able to count on her doctor to do what is medically necessary to protect her from serious physical harm.

Teri Garr

My doctor gave me six months to live, but when I couldn’t pay the bill he gave me six months more.

Passion, you see, can be destroyed by a doctor. It cannot be created.

Peter Shaffer

America has the best doctors, the best nurses, the best hospitals, the best medical technology, the best medical breakthrough medicines in the world. There is absolutely no reason we should not have in this country the best health care in the world.

Bill Frist

As a surgeon you have to have a controlled arrogance. If it’s uncontrolled, you kill people, but you have to be pretty arrogant to saw through a person’s chest, take out their heart and believe you can fix it. Then, when you succeed and the patient survives, you pray, because it’s only by the grace of God that you get there.

Mehmet Oz

I went to the doctor and he said I had acute appendicitis, and I said compared to who?

For the mind disturbed, the still beauty of dawn is nature’s finest balm.

Edwin Way Teale

For too long nurses have been undervalued, restricted in what they could do, with too few career opportunities in clinical practice. For far too long, nurses have endured a pay system that has held them back – both professionally as well as financially.

John Hutton

You know what they call the fellow who finishes last in his medical school graduating class? They call him ‘Doctor.’

Abe Lemons

No matter who you are, what you’ve accomplished, what your financial situation is – when you’re dealing with a parent with Alzheimer’s, you yourself feel helpless. The parent can’t work, can’t live alone, and is totally dependent, like a toddler. As the disease unfolds, you don’t know what to expect.

Maria Shriver

Disease is the retribution of outraged Nature.

Hosea Ballou

Today we have a health insurance industry where the first and foremost goal is to maximize profits for shareholders and CEOs, not to cover patients who have fallen ill or to compensate doctors and hospitals for their services. It is an industry that is increasingly concentrated and where Americans are paying more to receive less.

Dianne Feinstein

I’m 86 and my doctor used to tell me to slow down – at least he did until he dropped dead.

Cesar Romero

Privacy with medical information is a fallacy. If everyone’s information is out there, it’s part of the collective.

Henry Ward Beecher

The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease.

William Osler

It is much more important to know what sort of a patient has a disease than what sort of a disease a patient has.

William Osler

To study the phenomena of disease without books is to sail an uncharted sea, while to study books without patients is not to go to sea at all.

William Osler

Medicine sometimes snatches away health, sometimes gives it.

Ovid

Time is generally the best doctor.

Ovid

The mind controls so much of the body. We are much more than flesh and blood; we are complex systems. Patients do better when they have faith that they’re going to do better. That’s why I always tell my patients and their families not to neglect their prayers. There’s nobody I don’t say that to.

Ben Carson

The best doctor is the one you run to and can’t find.

In the name of Hypocrites, doctors have invented the most exquisite form of torture ever known to man: survival.

Edward Everett Hale

You can die of the cure before you die of the illness.

Michael Landon

People are so afraid of authority figures and doctors are authority figures.

Martha Beck

The human body experiences a powerful gravitational pull in the direction of hope. That is why the patient’s hopes are the physician’s secret weapon. They are the hidden ingredients in any prescription.

Norman Cousins

It is reasonable to expect the doctor to recognize that science may not have all the answers to problems of health and healing.

Norman Cousins

Cancer affects all of us, whether you’re a daughter, mother, sister, friend, coworker, doctor, patient.

Jennifer Aniston

I was going to have cosmetic surgery until I noticed that the doctor’s office was full of portraits by Picasso.

Rita Rudner

A physician’s physiology has much the same relation to his power of healing as a cleric’s divinity has to his power of influencing conduct.

Nicolas Cage

A hospital is no place to be sick.

Samuel Goldwyn

Any man who goes to a psychiatrist ought to have his head examined.

Oliver Cromwell

The patient decides when it’s best to go.

Jack Kevorkian

As a medical doctor, it is my duty to evaluate the situation with as much data as I can gather and as much expertise as I have and as much experience as I have to determine whether or not the wish of the patient is medically justified.

Jack Kevorkian

The patient’s autonomy always, always should be respected, even if it is absolutely contrary – the decision is contrary to best medical advice and what the physician wants.

Jack Kevorkian

Modern medicine is a negation of health. It isn’t organized to serve human health, but only itself, as an institution. It makes more people sick than it heals.

Ivan Illich

The doctors x-rayed my head and found nothing.

Dizzy Dean

A lot of psychological principles and even medical principles, you see them coming around to what the Bible said hundreds of years ago: a merry heart is good like a medicine.

Joel Osteen

I can testify to what UNICEF means to children because I was among those who received food and medical relief right after World War II.

Audrey Hepburn

Medical costs are of concern, both in developing and developed countries.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam

In order to deal with all the medical cost demands and other challenges in the U.S., as we look to raise that revenue, the rich will have to pay slightly more. That’s quite clear.

Bill Gates

I think the media can be a very positive influence by essentially holding people to task about the importance of high quality medical care. And when the media is scrutinizing you, then I think that’s a very good, positive thing for the field of medicine.

It seems sensible to me that we should look to the medical profession, that over the centuries has helped us to live longer and healthier lives, to help us die peacefully among our loved ones in our own home without a long stay in God’s waiting room.

Terry Pratchett

I believe it should be possible for someone stricken with a serious and ultimately fatal illness to choose to die peacefully with medical help, rather than suffer.

Terry Pratchett

When I came to this country in 1958, to be a dying patient in a medical hospital was a nightmare. You were put in the last room, furthest away from the nurses’ station. You were full of pain, but they wouldn’t give you morphine. Nobody told you that you were full of cancer and that it was understandable that you had pain and needed medication.

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

I went to medical school because I wanted to ask the big questions. Do we have a soul? Does God exist? What happens after death?

Deepak Chopra

I feel genius in great works of art. I have seen medical cures that science can’t explain, some seemingly triggered by faith. The same is true of millions of other people.

Deepak Chopra

Annual plants are nature’s emergency medical service, seeded in sounds and scars to hold the land until the perennial cover is re-established.

Wendell Berry

We’re investing billions of dollars in housing, in home care on the medical side. We’re investing billions of dollars in public transit that is not just creating good jobs now but is going to help people get to and from their good jobs in more reliable ways.

Justin Trudeau

I first wanted to be a psychiatrist. I decided against that in medical school when I discovered that psychiatrists didn’t, in reality, do what they did on TV.

Ben Carson

Over the years my mother’s steadfast faith in God has inspired me, particularly when I had to perform extremely difficult surgical procedures or when I found myself faced with my own medical scare.

Ben Carson

Medical researchers don’t know much about head lice because they don’t much care. The reason that they don’t much care is, paradoxically, that they know a lot. That is, they know one important thing: there is no evidence that head lice transmit disease.

P. J. O’Rourke

When you pay a hospital bill, you’re really paying two hospital bills – one bill for you because you have a job and/or insurance and can pay the hospital. and another bill, which is tacked onto your bill, to cover the medical expenses of someone who doesn’t have a job and/or insurance and can’t pay the hospital.

P. J. O’Rourke

I don’t feel one’s personal medical condition is everybody’s business. It just isn’t something you advertise, and it’s not open to discussion.

Aretha Franklin

I totally deplore the notion of an M.D. giving pills to patients – a medical doctor giving psychological or psychoactive change agents to another person.

Timothy Leary

No one plans to get sick or hurt – I certainly didn’t – but most people will need medical care at some point in their lives.

Magic Johnson

I read Freud’s Introductory Lectures in Psychoanalysis in basically one sitting. I decided to enroll in medical school. It was almost like a conversion experience.

Stanislav Grof

Folks, the most insidious part of this whole health care scheme is that all of these vast medical expenditures will become nothing more than government budget items. We individuals will no longer exist. The relationship between a government and citizen will change forever.

Rush Limbaugh

Every time you get a movie, you get a medical. So you know, you know you’re alright for a couple of weeks.

Michael Caine

I can say, ‘Well, I’m a male. I’m a male human. I’m a medical doctor. I’m an author…’ If I go to a religious point of view, I will say, ‘I am a soul. I am a spirit.’ If I go into science, I will say, ‘I am energy. I am light.’ But the truth is I have no idea what I am.

Don Miguel Ruiz

I have personally seen what a devastating medical condition can cost.

Tammy Duckworth

Had I been injured on the freeway and not in combat, it is likely that I would be bankrupt even though I had medical insurance through my civilian employer.

Tammy Duckworth

If you’re so pro-life, do me a favour: don’t lock arms and block medical clinics. If you’re so pro-life, lock arms and block cemeteries.

Bill Hicks

I entered Harvard Medical School knowing nothing of research.

J. Michael Bishop

We’re giving consumers the tools they need to see medical professionals virtually, to Skype with the doctor instead of wait in her office, to self-monitor vital signs, to connect with health-related communities, and to choose physicians based on reliable data about outcomes and cost.

Bruce Broussard

TED Women will focus on the ideas and innovations championed by women and girls. These cover everything from community development to economic growth to biodynamic farming to robotics to medical treatments to the use of technology for personal safety and peace making.

Pat Mitchell

America’s doctors, nurses and medical researchers are the best in the world, but our health care system is broken.

Mike Ferguson

The bill would ban human cloning, and any attempts at human cloning, for both reproductive purposes and medical research. Also forbidden is the importing of cloned embryos or products made from them.

Ken Calvert

The sort of thinking at the time was, ‘Well, we’re giving you access to medical care which you wouldn’t otherwise be able to get, so your payment is that we get to use you in research.’

Rebecca Skloot

Because of my medical and ideological training, I am accustomed to saying that life is adaptation and symbiosis.

Tabare Vazquez

I do not practice clinical medicine and hence do not treat individual patients. My career is in medical science.

Robert Jarvik

I am a medical scientist, not a practical physician.

Robert Jarvik

I accepted the role of spokesman for Lipitor because I am dedicated to the battle against heart disease, which killed my father at age 62 and motivated me to become a medical doctor.

Robert Jarvik

Whether it’s possible or not, being a doctor, you take an oath. To care for your patient, not to kill them. You take an oath to do things that are proper in the medical world. Not to administer something outside of a hospital setting that’s not even your area.

Jermaine Jackson

When I’m engaged in a story my health is not a big deal, but when I’m not doing anything, if you sit me down, I can get tied up in my own medical dramas. So I much prefer to work.

Katherine Boo

Before journalism, I had worked doing medical aid work in conflict zones. Then, as a journalist, I had written about hospitals in war zones.

Sheri Fink

It remains to be seen the extent to which the critical needs of seniors in low income high rises, people with home medical needs and those with disabilities have been adequately planned for and met during widespread power outages. I fear the answers.

Sheri Fink

Be an advocate for your loved ones in the hospital. Ask tough questions of your local hospital and health system about preparedness for the likeliest emergencies, and express your views on how medical resources should be allocated in case they ever fall short.

Sheri Fink

The medical device tax repeal is the only proposal that had the most bipartisan votes coming out of the House and has the opportunity in the Senate to gain tractions, and it fixes a part of ObamaCare in terms of repealing an awful tax. And it’s got bipartisan support.

Erik Paulsen

I had a sense of debt to the medical profession and to surgery particularly. I would not be as ambient as I am without it.

Jeffrey Tate

I decided, as a medical student, to devote myself to a study of the brain.

John Eccles

A board constituted as the board of Sydney Hospital is constituted is not a suitable body to have control of an institute of medical research.

John Eccles

I, at the age of 17 or 18 as a medical student, suddenly came up against a problem: ‘What am I? What is the meaning of my existence as I experience it?’

John Eccles

My opportunity to design school choice systems began in 2003 with a phone call from Jeremy Lack at the New York City Department of Education. He knew of my work on the medical match and wondered if similar efforts might help reorganize the dysfunctional, congested system then used to match students to high schools.

Alvin E. Roth

After wrestling with myself for six months, I began medical treatment. During that time I started a band with some friends of mine called Jack’s Car, but that didn’t last.

Jack Irons

With a lot of help from my high school teachers, I went to college and became a medical tech at a clinic outside Kansas City.

Gunter Blobel

I do think that VA, as the largest employer of nurses and the largest health system in the country, often does become a place where we can demonstrate advances in medical practice.

David Shulkin

Deaf people are struggling to find their favorite show or something that represents them. It’s hard. There are some examples of shows that have a deaf storyline in one episode, like Cold Case, or another show where they are focusing on the cochlear implant or the medical aspect.

Sean Berdy

Hunger, inadequate medical care, poor housing, and inferior schools are enemies of the sense of wonder. It is easier and less expensive in the long run to prevent a loss of imagination by providing adequate nutrition, housing, medical care, and schooling than it is to try to restore that loss.

Margaret Geller

Fort Smith, being the place of my longest stay, was the scene of my largest medical practice.

Ernest Thompson Seton

My diminished girth, in tailor phraseology, was hardly conceivable even by my own friends, or my respected medical adviser, until I put on my former clothing, over what I now wear, which is a thoroughly convincing proof of the remarkable change.

William Banting

I have many times thought I did the wrong thing, but the reason was not to be a medical doctor – it was just to have the information. But then, maybe I was wrong, I don’t know.

Voltaire

A hospital bed is a parked taxi with the meter running.

All sorts of computer errors are now turning up. You’d be surprised to know the number of doctors who claim they are treating pregnant men.

Isaac Asimov

If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn’t brood. I’d type a little faster.

Isaac Asimov

A physician is not angry at the intemperance of a mad patient, nor does he take it ill to be railed at by a man in fever. Just so should a wise man treat all mankind, as a physician does his patient, and look upon them only as sick and extravagant.

Lucius Annaeus Seneca

I am dying from the treatment of too many physicians.

Alexander the Great

You may not be able to read a doctor’s handwriting and prescription, but you’ll notice his bills are neatly typewritten.

It is in moments of illness that we are compelled to recognize that we live not alone but chained to a creature of a different kingdom, whole worlds apart, who has no knowledge of us and by whom it is impossible to make ourselves understood: our body.

Marcel Proust

Illness is the doctor to whom we pay most heed; to kindness, to knowledge, we make promise only; pain we obey.

Marcel Proust

Three-quarters of the sicknesses of intelligent people come from their intelligence. They need at least a doctor who can understand this sickness.

Marcel Proust

What is medical?

A medical journal is a concise written compendium providing information on diseases, medical conditions, examinations, symptoms, accidents and surgeries.

This can include a wide gallery of photos and diagrams related to the drug. A medical encyclopaedia provides readers with information about health issues.

This can also provide some knowledge about disease history, and the advancement of medical technology uses disease detection in its early stages. For diagnosis and treatment of any and all medical problems, see a licensed physician.
