Abstract "As a patient I would want a doctor who cares for me as a person, wouldn't you? If I were diagnosed with a serious, life-altering illness I would want a doctor whose presence gave me comfort. I would endow them with the power to lift my spirits when they called or walked into my room. Of course, I would also want them to have scientific expertise and technical skills, but I would most cherish their ability to attend to my existential and emotional needs. My doctor would analyze my data and listen to me, even bargain with me when tough decisions need to be made. I would want to be in the hands of somebody who kept me feeling safe from the chaos, indignity and suffering that accompanies disease"-- Provided by publisher.
