Hands down, seeing patients get better and go home.
In your opinion, what are the most important factors in a doctor-patient relationship?
Trust and communication.
What are your top priorities with every patient you see?
Listen and understand a patient's goal(s) and to work together with a patient to help them achieve their goals.
