Página 814 - ... of conduct pursued that may directly or indirectly tend to diminish the trust reposed in the physician employed.
Página 423 - ... 8. A physician when visiting a sick person in the country, may be desired to see a neighboring patient, who is under the regular direction of another physician, in consequence of some sudden change or aggravation of symptoms. The conduct to be pursued on such an occasion, is to give advice adapted to present circumstances ; to interfere no...
