The physician had first asked what qualities are important for a physician and when I mentioned being caring and compassionate she asked if I was and how I could show her. It was difficult for me to articulate how I am an empathetic person, but I used volunteer work at Shriner's and my compassion for the children to try to have her understand." Report Response
