Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Sophocles "As a medical student, I was once asked to recall the name of a rare disease. Stumped, I tried to come up with a believable response. The wise attending stopped me and offered the advice I have used every day since as a gynecologist. "The most important thing," he said "is that patients can tell whether you CARE. You have to care about the patients, and you have to listen to them.""
