To the Editor.—
I was delighted to read the article by James S. Goodwin, MD, entitled "OKT3, OKT4, and All That" (1981;246:947).In making rounds, there is always an aggressive, zealous, attending physician who asks for the postprandial serum porcelain. It appears that he read about it in some obscure journal from Lower Slobovia. And let us not forget the compleat physician who, when faced with an obviously dying patient, requests a sedimentation rate.Some physicians operate on cloud nine or like to hear themselves talk. Let's get with it, doctors! We have a real world to treat, not laboratory tests.
