(Which is a bit ironic since my friend - NOT a
neuro - was ranting recently about how
med schools now are too touchy-feely and that the personality traits that make excellent diagnosticians don't often come in the same package as decent people skills. He himself was actually moaning about the good old days when the doc could come in, be an unfeeling d*ck in his delivery of tragic news, but hey! he was RIGHT, and what do you want, right OR nice, because you don't get both.
