All of these professionals share a common bond which is the shared language of medicine if you will. Unfortunately, this is often forgotten when the doctor is speaking to his or her patient.

The proliferation of technology and the emphasis on revenue in health care is reflected in the quality of care and compassion administered to patients. Before technology, patients who were hospitalized received twenty-four-seven bedside care. Due to the lack of advancements in medicine, most patients were at end of life and comfort was the treatment provided. A nurse or doctor had to constantly be with the patient to monitor their vitals. With our current technological advancements this is no longer the case.
Since my parents are both doctors, my doctor was instructing my parents in detail before me, although I was older than eighteen years old. This was something that I hate. I believe that the physician should directly and clearly communicate with the patient if he or she is at age of understanding everything without involving third party.

"Approximately two-thirds of the risk of cancer and dementia is now considered to be the result of luck. For many years, medical teaching has been half of heart disease is related to family history.

One of the main reasons I picked this major is my family; my family members are almost all doctors, and my dad too. I have been growing up seeing my dad as a doctor, and he really loves his job, so automatically I got it from him. Many people pick this major to make money, but my dad always says, “This job is not for making money as much to help people and save their lives”.
