I was requested by my grandchild to accompany them to an out patient clinic which I did.
My grandchild has conditions which are difficult illnesses to treat.
The specialist had not treated my grandchild before, but was sent to see him because of some underlying concerns which he specialised in.
For one and a half hours he spoke with my grandchild, seeking out every piece of information he could. Then after an examination, explained what he was going to do in the way of additional tests required, the reasons for this, and possible outcomes.
He had obviously had experience in the wisdom of "seek first to understand" and the desire to "listen to the patient"
This was two hours of pure professionalism I have never seen before, and this doctor is well regarded by his patients I was lead to believe.
He will not wish the attention I know, but his name was Dr Chan.
