Abstract

To the Editor.  —I read with interest the letter by Ellenberger in the December 1991 issue of the Archives. As a physician cursed with the desire to spend time interacting with his patients, I felt simultaneously disgusted and inadequate while reading his description of "high-performance ophthalmology."My impression while reading his letter was that he, too, was not drawn to this style of practice. However, the last line suggested that the patients were not displeased with their places on the assembly line, nor with the brevity of their encounters with their doctor.I would ask Ellenberger if this is true. Do his patients not object? My guess is that they would. I would be interested in more details of his experience.
