What Doctors Feel: How Emotions Affect the Practice of Medicine - Danielle Ofri

A look at the emotional side of medicine—the shame, fear, anger, anxiety, empathy, and even love that affect patient care.

Physicians are assumed to be objective, rational beings, easily able to detach as they guide patients and families through some of life’s most challenging moments. But doctors’ emotional responses to the life-and-death dramas of everyday practice have a profound impact on medical care. And while much has been written about the minds and methods of the medical professionals who save our lives, precious little has been said about their emotions. In What Doctors Feel, Dr. Danielle Ofri has taken on the task of dissecting the hidden emotional responses of doctors, and how these directly influence patients.
