To the Editor: I am one of the septuagenarians described by Arnold in his cri de coeur over the demise of professional courtesies.1 In my medical student days, my teachers extended the courtesy of free medical treatment to my parents. I have continued this tradition, in the certain knowledge that this will be the only situation in which medical students save their parents money.
