C. Everett Koop, M.D.

No individual has done more good to the medical profession than Samuel Hahnemann (the father of homeopathy). I can’t remember a time when I didn’t want to be a doctor. The doctors I knew as a very young child must have helped to plant the desire in me, when I was as young as five or six. One Homeopathic physician, Dr. Justice Gage Wright, was a great model.
