Bernard Lown, emeritus professor of cardiology at Harvard, reminds us to resurrect the lost art of healing in our daily interactions with patients in this inspiring article.

Rich Joseph, of the NY Times, writes: “He called for a return to the fundamentals of doctoring — listening to know the patient behind the symptoms; carefully touching the patient during the physical exam to communicate caring; using words that affirm the patient’s vitality; and attending to the stresses and situations of his life circumstances.”

I couldn’t agree more. Thank you for this well written piece, Mr. Joseph.
