Thank you very much for your kind reply. Using subset worked. I had to
modify the syntax a little from what you posted:


where viatorr is the name of my data set.

Applying plot to the function above generated a survival curve for my
patients. I was also able to plot survival curves for other physicians
as well. This is great!
