Atlanta physician Dr. Scott A. Kelly says he has learned plenty from his patients.
Listening to people he has treated has made him a better doctor, Kelly says.
He has written a book about being taught such lessons from patients, titled “What I’ve Learned from You.”
In a new GHN Commentary, Kelly adds that part of his responsibility as a physician is “to bring compassion back to the doctor-patient relationship.”
