What Makes a Good Doctor?

As a physician, mother and patient, I have seen the role of physicians from many sides. There are many stories about good and bad doctors, I am striving to be one of the good ones. But what actually makes a good doctor? There is no foolproof formula for being a good doctor, but after years in practice, here is what I have learned and consider important:

In conclusion, a good doctor should know her field and be passionate about practicing medicine. At the same time, she should be humble and compassionate and spend the time to listen to her patients. If the patient feels safe, understood, taken seriously, and well taken care of by a physician, they will do better overall.
