Surgeons – Guy De Chauliac, 1360

“Let the surgeon be bold in all sure things, and fearful in
dangerous things; let him avoid all faulty treatments and
practices. He ought to be gracious to the sick, considerate to his
associates, cautious in his prognostications. Let him be modest,
dignified, gentle, pitiful, and merciful; not covetous nor a
extortionist of money; but rather let his reward be according to
his work, to the means of the patient, to the quality of the issue,
and to his own dignity.”
Guy De Chauliac, 1360
