Thomas Jefferson said that given the choice between government without newspapers and newspapers without government, he would choose to have newspapers.

In medicine we have government without newspapers. Patients cannot find out what they need to know to make informed choices. No one in medicine records or reports the information patients need to know the most. So patients will have to.

Dr. James Burt

Burt said he performed more than 4,500 operations between 1966 and 1977. It is difficult to believe anything Burt reports himself, but there is reason to believe the number of "love" surgeries that he reported.

. . . at one time in the early seventies, Burt was delivering so many babies and doing so many surgeries at the medical center, his practice accounted for 5 percent of patient revenues generated by some 500 physicians. That fact, as much as anything, explains why Burt, the cash cow, was a hard man to stop.
From an article called MALPRACTICE BURT SETTLEMENTS END SOME PAIN By: Ellen Belcher, Dayton Daily News. Thursday, September 11, 1997

The fact that he gave up delivering babies to have time for all the "love surgeries" he was performing lends credence to the large number of surgeries he says he performed.

Also, when insurance companies no longer would insure him, he sued them saying he had lost $3,000,000 in business as a result. Another large number.
