The doctor-patient relationship is more than the doctor’s professionalism and the patient’s needs. It is also based on mutual trust, empathy, understanding, and compassion. After many years of work, I am aware of the high honour and responsibility for being chosen to treat children. Their parents become my like-minded friends and associates in the fight against diseases. I trust them too. I am grateful to each of my existing and potential clients who chose or will choose me as a doctor for their children. I have already started treating children of my patients who used to visit me when they were kids. The more children the better! I am getting more and more convinced that the best thing people can do is bringing new people to this world.
