I clicked through each one and found these stories telling…in that each of these professionals (though specializing in different areas of medicine) shared a common insight….
Listening to people and their emotions matters.
Listening to people as patients concerned about their health matters.
Listening. Period. Matters.
It’s no surprise to medical doctors and their staff that people arrive in their offices pretty beaten up (down) by their current physical condition. And though they require medical care…equally important is the emotional care they need.
And people equate feeling cared for emotionally by being listened to patiently.
Get that equation because it’s important.
People (patients) require physicians (and other attending staff) to listen.
And according to these interviews below…this type of RX listening is as valuable to a patient’s overall health as is any medical procedure or cure.
Just saying that people are people first and patients second.
