To the Editor: I read with interest and alarm your comments on generalists and gerontology in the 16 September 2002 issue of the Journal.1 I believe the role of the general internal medicine physician in managing patients with complex multisystem disease is still important and will expand in the future. General physicians remain passionate about general medicine.2
