In response to R. Pete Vanderveen's kind offer ("How to Care for 30 Million More Patients," op-ed July 19): Thanks but no thanks.

Pharmacy is an ancient art that used to be practiced by physicians. It was gradually surrendered, largely due to the obvious conflict of interest involved in prescribing, then selling, various remedies.

I have only respect for pharmacists, and they are an indispensable part of the team. They can, and do, pick up potential drug interactions. Most physicians appreciate updates on what our patients are actually taking.

However, pharmacists do not have a Hippocratic obligation to the patient. Allowing pharmacists to practice medicine would likely create more problems than it would solve. The need for doctors to stay in contact with dozens of pharmacists would add considerably to our workload.
