What Happens When a Physician Takes the Time to Be Mindful?

If before going into a patient’s room, a physician does a walking meditation, gathers themselves, focuses their mind to be truly present, and then walks in quietly and peacefully.  That’s already medicine.

The physician is calm. Not fragmented, stressed, rushed or distant.  The patient feels that attention, that tenderness, that care, that true presence. The patient is already soothed.
That’s real medicine.
