"Patient is Our God"

A few days back I was enlightened by the words of our Physiology professor Dr. S P Bhattacharya. One of our favourite teachers, Sir was guiding us in a practical class in his usual friendly style when he said this.

It is very wrong to think we are doing a huge favour to a patient by offering him medical treatment. On the contrary we should be happy to have the opportunity of offering our service to an ailing person. We must treat the suffering man honourably - the patient is our GOD.

I am really touched by this idea. I’ll remember this always.
