153 – Is our biggest strength our greatest weakness?

It’s well known that doctors put patients first even though it may have negative social effects on doctors. Whether we call it professionalism or an edict, this way of life has allowed us to be viewed as unbiased advocates for our patients.

 

Dr. Danielle Ofri joins me on this episode to discuss an Op-Ed she wrote in the NY Times last year discussing if our professionalism is being taken advantage of by hospitals.  Dr. Danielle Ofri  is an internist at Bellevue Hospital and NYU School of Medicine. She writes regularly for the New York Times, Slate Magazine and other publications about medicine and the doctor-patient relationship. Dr. Ofri is the author of five books, including, most recently, “What Patients Say; What Doctors Hear.” Her TED talks include Deconstructing Perfection and Fear: A Necessary Emotion.
