Going to the doctor


"When we say that the Torah gave the doctor permission to heal, this means that healing is not prohibited out of concern for error. Alternatively, it is lest people allege that Gd strikes and this person comes to heal, and that it is not the way of humans to heal but only human habit…

"Rather, this permission is a mitzvah, for it is a mitzvah to heal and it is part of saving lives."

(Ramban, Torat haAdam, Sakkanah)

Have a great day,
