There seems to be a large gap between our search for the medical facts and the information provided to us by the medical professions. I am pleased by Dr. Richard's comment on patients who ''don't want the doctor to play a magic role...take us off our pedestals." This is an interesting twist to the social prestige the average physician seems to command. As a part of my studies at Texas Woman's University, School of Occupational Therapy, I read a study indicating a physician's specialty prestige is related to the degree of control that it exerts over a patient's outcome (i.e. the amount of "magic" that the physician performs). When both surgical patients and physicians were questioned, the statistics revealed there was little difference in their views of this active-passive relationship. In my opinion, it is the consumers of medical services that must be willing to change this passive role. There just are not enough doctors around like Marrie Richards who are willing to share the responsibilities of our own health with us. The health professions need to take an active position by maintaining high standards through a preventative method, rather than by emphasizing the curative one. Maybe through the information Breakthrough readers will gain from Dr. Richard's column, there will be an increased awareness of our minds and bodies and this will bring on the subsequent demystification of the medical establishment as a whole. —Pat Gmitter meetings Houston Area Feminist Federal Credit Union will hold its annual meeting March 22 at the Electric Living Center, 1212 West Loop South.
