'Great surgeons' who bully med students put us all at risk

A physician who spews jargony gibberish, the surgeon who snaps at a nurse, the gerontologist who doesn't have a kind word for your mother — these are not the doctors we recommend glowingly to friends. While we often excuse their bad "bedside manner" because they are "good doctors" or "gifted surgeons," doing that is hurting everyone, a must-read story in Aeon suggests.
