"Don't just treat the disease--treat the patient as a whole person. Understand that every patient has unique needs, and meet them with compassion and respect. Try to know the maximum about your patient, and let the patient ask as many questions as possible. The more you know about your patient, and the more patient knows about what is going on, the easier and more successful will be your work."
