"I care"

After reading "18 Stethoscopes, 1 Heart Murmur and Many Missed Connections" in the New York Times, I sure hope that my patients view me as Ben. That my neon sign flashes "I care". The start of my clinical rotations in a few short months will be a true test of this...

I just need to remember that listening to my patients, truly listening, is one of the most important services I can offer.
