To the Editor: We read with interest the Viewpoint by Drs Tilburt and Cassel1 on the ethics of parsimonious medicine vs rationing. We agree that parsimonious medical care should be distinguished from rationing and that parsimony is a virtue to which all physicians should strive in the practice of medicine.2
