What, you don’t want Dr. Zeke as your oncologist?
He probably had a very low patient readmission rate...

Ezekiel Emanuels medical license should be revoked.
Long, long ago!
Instead, he is Director of the Clinical Bioethics Department at the U.S. National Institutes of Health.

Ezekiel Emanuel wrote an article for The Hastings Center Report in 1996, in which he suggested that public deliberative forums should decide which health services should be socially guaranteed, and that those services "that ensure healthy future generations, ensure development of practical reasoning skills, and ensure full and active participation by citizens in public deliberations" might be considered by this deliberative body as "basic", while "services provided to individuals who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming participating citizens are not basic and should not be guaranteed". He goes on to give examples illustrating these two concepts: "not guaranteeing health services to patients with demenia", while "guaranteeing neuropsychological services to ensure children with learning disabilities can read and learn to reason".
