This content was provided by Dr. Morcos ""Patients don't care how much you know until they know how much you care". This is where my Philosophy of care starts. No concern a patient has is too simple to deserve my full attention. The time spent explaining a disease process and its management is as important if not more important than the skill involved in its surgical treatment. I was given the unique privilege, through years of training and experience, to develop an expertise in treating the most challenging brain disorders. Patients are not data points. The sacred doctor-patient relationship never grows old on me, and is honestly a constant source of personal satisfaction. In an era where Healthcare has become an industry, to bureaucrats and politicians, I am very comfortable being stuck in my old fashioned Hippocratic ideals. The smile on a patient's face on a postoperative visit is simply worth every initial tense moment, every sacrifice. If you love what you do, it is not work. I have not worked a day in my life."
