Sunshine

An 84 year old man with an extensive cardiac history, 2 previous strokes, carotid artery stenosis, is admitted to the ER with syncopal attack this morning. He was breathless but pain free. With his daughter, a resident, a nurse and an ER tech surrounding him spots me standing at the back and says ” That smile makes me feel better already”.

Thank you sir. You did make my day. Guess what, I could do even better if I was your treating doctor.

  4. See…I think it’s not ridiculously Bollywood-ish when they say smiles change things. I’m sure your patients will be helped way faster in the near future!
