Smile Therapy

As doctors sometimes the work that we do becomes routine and mundane, but then something unexpected happens that makes us realize why we do the things that we do. The following is a status update on a colleague’s FB page. Couldn’t help but smile myself. πŸ™‚

“at the clinic earlier, a patient who was biopsied back in 2011 and has seen a couple of nephrologists (and fellows) since comes in. She tells me that I gave her the best explanation regarding her condition ever. She had stopped seeing her doctors since late 2011 because they didn’t explain what they were doing and what they had been looking for in her labs. So yeah, I left the clinic and my smile was *thiiiiiiiiiiiisssssssss* big. hahaha”
