This highly skilled individual is often someone with an overriding obsession with technology, and usually a super-specialist with an interest in only a small area of the body. A doctor who sees the body merely as a repairable machine, rather than as part of a suffering person – a machine that can best be diagnosed, and then treated, only by other machines.’
