“I can’t imagine any other profession that brings joy like practicing the art of medicine.  It’s a science, but it’s also very much an art.  Sure, you’ve got to know science, understand statistics, analyze data, be able read a study and know its value.  But a physician really makes a difference when there’s an interest in and a commitment to really getting to know the patient.  That’s why I chose primary care and internal medicine.  I like getting to know my patients as individuals and building long-term relationships with them.  When I know what’s happening in their lives, I have greater insight as I’m treating them.  I remember someone asking an elderly doctor who knew he was dying what he would like to do with the rest of his life, and he said exactly what he was doing … practicing medicine.”
