The practice of medicine is the practice of compassion........however this is not taught in any medical school.                    Patch Adams. MD

Dr Patch Adams worked as a physician for free for 12 years. He had a night time job to support himself. He said he paid to practice medicine because it was such a priveledge to do so! His practice included spending 4 hours with every patient during his first consult so he could truly know and understand what was wrong with the patient and thereby provide assistance. His treatment included using love, compassion and humour.
