"compassionate care" is overrated. I don't know about the rest of the country, but in la/oc, health care is a business. Accordingly, i expect good outcome/output/advises given to me that's patient centered more than anything. 

I hear "compassionate" by t

I : I hear you. For me, the best is a doctor who is extremely knowledgable, proficient and who listens and cares. If i needed general surgery, i would go for a doctor with exceptional surgical skills even if he or she didn't have much personality, over a nice surgeon with so - so skills. If i was going to see a therapist, i might want someone competent who appeared to really listen and care over the behavioral health provider who mostly had book knowledge going for them. With medical skills being equal, i think the average patient wants a provider who is compassionate too. You should not have to give up on medical skills/ knowledge/ communication skills and patient- centered care to get compassion. And vice versa. In other words, one should not be exclusive of the other. By the way, compassion in medicine does not need to equate to "mr. Roger's neighborhood". Compassion can also be expressed by candor and being tough. ...Read more
