The word "Doctor" is originally an agentive noun of the Latin verb doc?re 'to teach'. I take that meaning very seriously.

Dr. Michaelis Says:
As I said earlier, I really enjoy spending time with my patients and getting to know them on a personal level. It's probably the best part of what I do. The opportunity to meet so many wonderful people is only possible because of what I do for a living. Anytime a patient feels the same way it really makes all the sacrifice and hard work worth it.
