    Beautiful article Sarah !

    As a future doctor, I hope to build a similar rapport with my patients.

    You are an inspiration to all health care professionals :)

    What a beautiful, caring story. Sarah, I know that you are fully involved with all your patients and they are lucky to have you as their physician willing to care for them to the end. Take good care of yourself.
