A Catholic Prescription for a Healthy Doctor-Patient Relationship

To understand the nature of the doctor-patient relationship, we need to begin by understanding the nature of the human person as an integration of soul, mind, and body.

COMMENTARY: When we see both the patient and the doctor as equally worthy of dignity and respect, while understanding that the role of the doctor is to serve the patient, we then have a solid foundation from which to build an ethical, life-affirming and economically sustainable health care system.
