Video Transcripts

Mark Kozloff, MD: I think the wisdom that I can give to other physicians, maybe to patients, is that you need to, when you are with a patient, you have to show that you care about that patient, you have to care about the illness that they have, you want to go the extra mile for them and they truly appreciate when you can explain to them, when you get more information for them, you just don’t run things off. I think patients in the long run will be very appreciative, the more information you can give them, the better they will feel about the care they are getting from you and I try to tell the younger doctors that I teach that this is so important when you are in the room with a patient, show them that you care about the patient, you care about their illness and you are there to get as much information and to give them the best treatments available to them.
