enter into the 21st century it appears we continue to expand most
of our fast paced elements of our lifestyles. Instant gratification,
fast foods, fast cars continue to be the norm. If your car doesn't
do 0-60 in 6 seconds the chances are you will be late for work and
not beat the long traffic jams.
21st century medical culture appears to be on the same radar screen.
If your office visit lasts 12 minutes you are unusually lucky. You
probably leave with a pocket full of samples advertised on TV and
hold your breath until your HMO or Medicare kicks in again.
