IF YOU COULD ONLY CLONE HIM

HAPPY TO SEE A REVIEW BELOW FROMA DOC I HIGHLY RESPECT, BUT I HARDLY NEEDED VALIDATION. DOCS.LIKE DR. S ARE TOO RARE TO COM BY TODAY..IN A TIME WHEN DOCS STARE AT A WATCH OR CLOCK OR MAKE FOR A DOOR HANDLE, WELL THAT IS WHEN DR. A REALLY STARTS TO LISTEN. IT IS NOT THAT HE IS SMART OR ARTICULATE--IT IS THAT HE RESPECTS THE WAY IN WHICH, MAYBE FOR GOOD OR BAD, THAAT IS PATIENT WANTS TO LIVE--OF COURSE, HE WILL TRY TO INSPIRE YOU TO LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST, BUT HE UNDERSTANDS PEOPLE MAKE CHOICES AND COMPROMISES THAT THEY CAN ONLY EXPLAIN TO THEMSELVES---I THINK DR, A IS THE TYPE OF DOC WHO CAN HELP YOU EXPLAIN IT TO OTHERS--FAMILY, DOCS, MEDB ADMINISTRATORS. IN YIDDISH, THE HIGHEST COMPIMENT ONE CAN PAY TO A PERSON ISS TO CALL HIM OR HER A "MENSCH"--THAT DESCRIBES DR. A. DON'T TAKE HIM FRO GRANTED, IN MY EXPERIENCE, ANDUNFORTUNATELY I HAVE HAD MY SHARE, THIS TYPE OF DOC, THIS TYPE OF MAN IS A RARE FIND AND TO HAVE HIM BE YOUR ADVICATE IS A BLESSING. HE DESERVES THE UTMOST RESOECT FROM PATIENTS AND THOSE WHO WORK WITH HIM.
