This remarkable Dr. had a profound impact on me, treating patients with genuine depth and encompassing their entire being – their backgrounds, social connections, and environmental factors. What struck me most was his exceptional bedside manner and the level of care he provided to each patient. I am constantly inspired by his approach and strive to emulate it as a provider.
