Expecting to Heal: Docere, Pancreatic Cancer, and a Physician’s Role in Healing

Expecting to Heal: Docere, Pancreatic Cancer, and a Physician’s Role in Healing

Ratings: (0)|Views: 141|Likes:
To be a truly holistic practitioner, in my opinion, is to be more concerned about a patient’s understanding of health and what that patient is doing—physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually—to be healthy. This may be the most fundamental principle that reflects my approach to patients in my primary care practice in Edmonton, Alberta.
I consult with approximately seven to eight patients daily and address everything from oncology to pediatrics. Most of the patients I currently treat present with gastrointestinal or autoimmune complaints. A lot of people with health problems are desperate for answers, understandably. They’re looking for that “magic pill.” But in addition to helping patients address specific issues, I also try to help them look at their overall lives and their paths to health rather than simply focusing on a particular condition or symptom. The case described below illustrates how this approach informed my work with a patient who came to me with pancreatic carcinoma.
