Acknowledgments: The observations that doctors lack words came out of work by many of the 550 faculty to the Bayer Institute for Health Care Communication. Drs. Platt, Fox, Adler, and Weston are among these faculty. Support for attempts to explicate such words came from the publications committee of the American Academy on Physician and Patient (AAPP). Drs. Platt, Coulehan, Smith, and Stewart are members of AAPP.
