Dear Reader:

Welcome to the lighthouse of medical journalism, The Medical Sentinel, the official, peer-review journal of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS).

The Medical Sentinel is committed to publishing scholarly articles in defense of the practice of private medicine, the tenets and principles set forth in the Oath of Hippocrates, individually-based medical ethics, and the sanctity of the patient-doctor relationship.

Kudos to the Medical Sentinel

Dear Dr. Orient,

Regarding the Medical Sentinel, I’ll have a hard time deciding which to devour first when I simultaneously receive mailing from the L. von Mises Institute or this quarterly.

Dear Dr. Faria,

Congratulations! The initial publication of the Medical Sentinel immediately establishes and reflects the high standards characteristic of a AAPS.

Having read it cover to cover, I have been introduced to Board [of Directors] and Editorial Board members whose writings promise many thought-provoking and useful ideas…

Dear Editor,

I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the Medical Sentinel. You are doing a great service to our profession by providing a vehicle for the expression of our noblest sentiments and clear, reasoned arguments in support of the principles of free, ethical medicine. In addition, it helps to keep the “fire” alive within us and bind us together....

Dear Dr. Faria,

I have seen the first number of the Medical Sentinel and I was particularly pleased by your statement that it is committed to the defense of the tenets set forth in the Hippocratic Oath. As I have tried myself to defend the Oath from some of its attackers, I am glad that its value is reaffirmed. Best wishes to you and to the Medical Sentinel...
