“As a society, we want (and need) the specialists who limit their practice to a specific body part or system to treat people as whole people anyway—and to be alert to and provide basic services for problems in other parts or systems. It is IRRESPONSIBLE for any physician (or other healthcare practitioner) to IGNORE symptoms in any domain. An orthopedist like Dr. Hanscom who is alert to the possibility of psychosocial issues and attends to them is many people’s dream of a wonderful doctor.”
