Avoid Poor Rapport

People can sense when you’re in a rush or focusing too much on an electronic health record (EHR). We must appreciate the importance of bedside manner and establishing trust with patients. Compassion is often more effective than a quick Z-pack. I’ve been told by many patients that they feel better just by having a conversation with me in the room. It’s important to be mindful of this influence as we practice the art of medicine.
