Voltaire - Medical quote no longer valid

Times have changed Monsieur Voltaire.

Your quote is no longer valid in our "Evidence Based Medicine" world.

The quote's accuracy is stunning though if applied to quacks.

Our advice to young practitioners : DO NOT BLINDLY FOLLOW WHAT A SENIOR DOCTOR IS DOING.
Try to  understand why he did something for that specific problem.

Always ask if you do not understand.
