I read with interest the article by Richard C. Miller, MD,1 "Dermatologists Should Guard Their Patients' Purse, Not Pick Their Pockets!" in the March 1999 issue of the ARCHIVES. Since I participated on the "pro" side of the debate on this issue at the 1999 American Academy of Dermatology meeting in New Orleans (Controversies in Dermatology symposium), I feel qualified and obligated to comment at this time.
