Excellent current and updated medical knowledge make a great medical doctor. This saves lives, it heals. When we have compassion and empathy towards our patients makes medical practice a wonderfully rewarding experience.

Patients heal sooner when they are listened to when they feel supported. The body responds better to medical treatments and surgical procedures. Recovery is faster.

Fear, stress, helplessness, sadness, physical and emotional pain, embarrassment and isolation are aspects of the illness experience patients go through. Understanding these issues and showing true compassion and empathy towards our patients makes us better doctors with healthier/happier patients.
