Presidential Physician: Burton Lee III
- Long-time friend of the Bush family [Hedger].
- From [Hedger]: "Dr. Lee enjoyed his time at the White House. But the frustration of not being able to advise Bush on health care policy -- something he says he had been promised -- still riles him. `Would I do it over again?' asked Dr. Lee, 78, a highly regarded oncologist who gave up a 30-year practice in New York and is now retired in Florida.
"I'd have to say that I should not have done it. I gave up much too much. But I did do it, and you can't complain about being in the White House. It's a huge honor, and George Bush ran a very upscale White House."
