Seite 243 - A patient should, if possible, avoid even the friendly visits of a physician who is not attending him • — and when he does receive them, he should never converse on the subject of his disease, as an observation may be made, without any intention of interference, which may destroy his confidence in the course he is pursuing, and induce him to neglect the directions prescribed to him.
