Physicians are accused of being the worst patients. Some of us wear that label with a perverse sense of honor. We think it means that we have unparalleled dedication because we can see patients while dehydrated and sick, because we can operate while febrile and exhausted, and because we sacrifice our own needs by putting our responsibilities to patients first. To us, there is no greater humiliation than to be thought of as weak. I have missed fewer than 2 weeks of work in 30 years, and most of that was a result of a ski lift accident, 2 long operations, and a lengthy recuperation. And I was proud (okay, I still am proud) that I operated 2 weeks later with that broken leg and ankle, and the patients did well.
