I believe that caring for someone must include treatment of diseases, medical interventions, spending time with patients and their families, taking all measures in patient education to prevent diseases, and finally do my best to enable the patient to get back to their normal lives. Hippocrates remarked, “It is more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has.” I believe it is even better to know well both the disease and the person. I have made an irrevocable commitment in my practice to treat every patient as my own kith and kin. I think that good healthcare is more than technical excellence. Good healthcare is the delivery of excellence combined with compassion, love and an approach to address the whole patient whose body, mind and soul present to the doctor. Only then does a doctor rise to become a healer. Only then can we put back the "Care" in "Healthcare". That is my commitment. That is my promise.
