The Most Poetic Description of Clinic I Have Ever Heard...

From Ben Chesuk & Eric Holmboe's How Teams Work- Or Don't- In Primary Care: A Field Study On Internal Medicine Practices, Appearing in Health Affairs, May 2010.

"The physicians we observed experienced a workday as a series of nonstop, one-on-one interactions with a
stream of patients, with little or no interaction with others on the team. Physicians at all three practices worked within a bubble of frantic activity, right from the start." 

That's about right.
