Dear All,
Wow! Thank you for all your comments and support. I did not expect the reception the article got—it got picked up by NPR later in the day.  Will answer the various questions this weekend—stretched particularly thin till then.
Thanks

Vinita,
Your piece is wonderful.  Your ending “So, although a doctor who gets the diagnosis right every time makes for good TV drama, in the real world, the truly “good doctor” is one who makes mistakes, acknowledges them, and learns from them.” is perfect!!!  Premature closure on the wrong diagnosis, and other cognitive mistakes are actually repetitive,  boring stories that have little intrigue…perhaps that is why they haven’t made a TV show about it.
Thanks for sharing!
