"Question: When was the last time a complete stranger took off her clothes infront of you, pointed to a big purple splotch on her back and asked 'what the hell is thing thing?' If you're a normal person the answer is, hopefully, never. If you're a doctor the answer is, probably, five minutes ago. People expect doctors to have all the answers. The truth is we love to think we have all the answers too. Basically doctors are knowitalls until something comes along that reminds us we're not."
"We're all looking for answers; in medicine, in life, in everything. Sometimes the answers we're looking for have been hiding just below the surface. Other times we find answers when we didn't even realize we were asking the question. Sometimes the answers can catch us completely by suprise and sometimes even when we find the answer we're been looking for we're still left with a whole hell of a lot of questions."
