I want each patient to feel as though I have listened to them and that I’m caring and compassionate. I try to understand how their condition affects them. Patients often tell me that I’m very thorough, which translates into taking the time needed to treat their condition.

Would have liked a educational pamphlet on the two different types of skin lessons treated, MD explained them to me well, but the materials to read at home would have reinforced my understanding.
