”Hope is the deep orientation of the human soul that can be held at the darkest times.” — Vaclav Havel

Imagine you have just left your doctor’s office. As you are driving home or to the pharmacy, you reflect on your experience. Was it a good one overall? Did the doctor listen to me and address my concerns? Was the doctor patient, a good listener, respectful and compassionate? Did the doctor use language I could understand?

Dr. Victor S. Sierpina is the WD and Laura Nell Nicholson Family Professor of Integrative Medicine and Professor of Family Medicine at UTMB.
