The first thing Rev. Parris does is attend to Betty Parris's trance like state. He finds a doctor to determine if she is actually sick or if there is something wicked going on, "Let him look to medicine and put out all thought of unnatural causes here." To be sure the first thing he thinks about would be his reputation in town should a witches be around under his holy watch.
