This medical comic is hilarious. The doctor went through great lengths to show "empathy" (no pun intended) to the patient by wearing a customized hospital gown (I believe this is a case of symapthy rather than empathy). In everyday consults, doctors would have to be able to put themselves in patient's shoes which is also known as empathy. This allows them to treat the patient and not just the disease. The important trait is not readily available to most young practicioners and needs to be harnessed through clinical experience.
For the MIMS community, how do you practice/show empathy to the patients? Do you see anything peculiar or have a refreshing take with the comic too?
