I'm much more of a listener than a talker. And so I like to listen to everything that the patient has to say, and try to balance it out - not only their physical symptoms, but whatever is going on in their life - their emotional and relationship type issues.

It's still a great black box and a great mystery, but we're learning ever so more about it as time goes on.
