To begin with, this is an extremely rare, genuinely concerned humanitarian and compassionate doctor who goes well beyond the scope of her limitations as a medical professional to ensure that her patients are taken care of appropriately. She will take a vested interest in your needs and goals in life to ensure that the proper treatment modalities are utilized. Extremely empathy, patience, kindness, psychological insight, as well as productive humor are her strengths !
