Abstract

We live in a different era of medicine than that of the great Hippocrates. Our patients are better informed, with ready access to a plethora of medical information, and enter the consultation with expectations of being offered therapies for all their ailments. But is it still true, over 2000 years after Hippocrates, that 'nothing is sometimes a good remedy'?
