According to Abraham Verghese, M.D., it might be the most critical moment in an individual’s life – lying on a gurney, almost ready for surgery, and then the anesthesiologist comes to visit.
“That moment for me, that brief interaction, embodies all of medicine: the juxta-position of humans needing care, a physician expressing caring, but with a backdrop of mind-boggling technology and a situation that may be routine enough but never lacks the potential to be life-threatening,” he said.
Dr. Verghese is an acclaimed best-selling author, clinician, teacher, international lecturer and a leading voice in the discussion about what quality care means now and in the future.
