MY WHITE COAT MEANS TRUST
My white coat means “trust” because I want my patients to feel comfortable enough to confide anything to me and trust that I won’t be judgmental. I want my patients to trust that I will always be honest with them, to tell them the truth even if the truth is difficult. I want my patients to trust that I will always be compassionate and respectful towards them, even if they are angry or lashing out because they are afraid. I want my patients to trust that I will always go above and beyond for them, giving them the best care possible by listening to all of their concerns and by putting their interests first.
