The Doctor-Patient Relationship
Gordon, Harry H.
Journal of Medicine and Philosophy. 1983 Aug; 8(3): 243-255.
Gordon, an emeritus professor of pediatrics, considers the ethical aspects of the physician patient relationship as perceived by a religious humanist committed to the Judaic heritage. Presupposing the physician's responsibility to be professionally competent, he identifies the major components of his or her ethical behavior to be respect for the patient's autonomy, limitation of paternalism, and compassion. Gordon cites Judaic sources for this ethic and deplores decisions by civil and rabbinic judges which conflict with these ethical imperatives. (KIE abstract)
