“A friend in need is a friend indeed” is an old and popular axiom which aptly encapsulates the relationship between doctors and patients. A good doctors acts as a friend, philosopher, and guide for his patients who approach him/her in the time of crisis. When a person is ill or injured, it is a time of distress and despair for him as well as his family and relatives.
A competent doctor heals the wounds or cures the patient, but a magnanimous doctor is the one who not only heals the wounds but also counsel and guide the patient while ameliorating emotional scars. A lot of patients are emotionally vulnerable and mentally infirm due to illness or injuries. There are clouds of uncertainty and fears. That is where doctors need to step up and push the envelope. They must lend emotional succour to patients and candidly explain them the course of action. Counselling patients regarding the obscure or little-known disease is also a hallmark of a sterling doctor.
Patients place a lot of trust in doctors and look upon them as their savior. They approach doctors with a sense of hope expecting that they would bail them out of quagmire. This is the reason that doctors enjoy stellar reputation in society and are seen as someone who doing their bit for the betterment of society. Hence it is paramount for doctors to measure up to the high esteem they are held in by hoi polloi.
Patients must also understand the diligence and emotional vigour a doctor has to put in. It is not a regular 9 to 5 job. Patients must appreciate the fact that doctors work relentlessly to tide them over the troubles they’re facing. Patients must share their misgivings and woes with the doctor but must refrain from hounding him. That is counter-productive and eventually puts doctor off.
Friendship is a two-way process. There must be mutual trust and respect between patients and doctors. This is instrumental in effective and fruitful treatment. It also makes the whole process of treatment less cumbersome and stressful. This also leads to long-standing and robust friendships for life.
