You can find this meeting outside Penn Presbyterian Medical Center (although most people still call it Presbyterian Hospital).
This illustrates some important points. First, when four doctors "consult" each other on your case, all four of them can bill for services rendered. Notice that fellow in the background, rushing to join the others. His urgent stride seems to say, "Wait for me, fellas! I want to get in on this gravy train, too!"
Also, it appears that all doctors are white men. (Actually, the statues could be really old, as the hospital itself was founded in 1871, so perhaps they just reflected the times?)
