When it comes to healing, doctors balance a delicate formula of the logic of medical science with the expression of a heart-to-heart connection with their patients. If a patient receives compassion and correct treatment, the road to recovery is faster and healthier. However with heavy workloads, sometimes health institutions operate mechanically rather than humanely.
People need caring and affordable healthcare to reach true well-being founded upon hope for their futures.
