To the Editor:  —I have been using hypnosis on my medical, surgical, obstetrical, psychiatric, and pediatric patients since 1954 and can report excellent results. It is true that I have failures in hypnosis as well as failures in penicillin therapy, but I have never encountered any untoward results. My patients with major psychiatric problems are referred to a psychiatrist. I believe that other general physicians who use hypnosis would support my experience.
