In my 43 years, I can only think of two doctors who have truly made a difference to me - Dr. Gawande is one of them. I went to Dr. Gawande as a second opinion about having a thyroidectomy because of suspicious thyroid cancer. He sat me down and explained there was nothing suspicious about it. He was firm in his belief of what I should have done, but compassionate and understanding. He treated me as a person rather than a number. He answered all of my questions thoroughly and sometimes more than once. In the time leading up to surgery, he always quickly responded to my emails and even called me once to reassure my fears. On the day of surgery, he came out and met my family and again and answered all of their questions. After surgery, not only did his nurse call and check in with me, but he called to check up on me himself - not once, but twice. One of those calls came two months following the procedure. His assistant was just as spectacular! Gawande makes you feel as if you are the first patient he's ever had when in fact, he has more experience in thyroidectomies than any of the doctors in my small town area did combined.
