Stop whining. Dr. Epstein is a trauma surgeon. Trauma surgeons saves lives. Do you want a long talk, compassion, and smiling faces? Go buy a mattress. Do you want to walk out of the hospital? Be grateful Dr. Epstein is in your trauma bay.

It is unimaginable to me that Dr. Epstein is still able to meet with patients and their loved ones. I was at my dying mother's bedside trying to understand her state of cognition and said I don't understand the brain that well and Dr. Epstein looked at me point blank and said THAT IS WHAT THE...more
