The Healing Encounter

Speaker- Christina Puchalski, MD
When you enter the room of your patient put your hand on that doorknob, take a deep breath and remember why you became a healer.

What gave you meaning? Why did you jump through all those hoops? Through all that training?

Take a moment. Remind yourself that you are there to serve that person.

It's as if you take off your shoes to respect and honor what you will find inside.
