Any doctor might become a different doctor if they go through the experience of a patient, despite the special privileges that they may get in their own hospital.
Read the experience shared by Dr Marc B. Garnick in his article, Filling in the Gaps – the agony of looking at his own image on a screen with a second nasty cancer, the fatigue that he went through, the sheer burden of paperwork.
Reading this all makes one wonder whether we appreciate what the typical Indian patient goes through!
