As a professor at a university, I conduct much research, and in my work I came across a quotation from The Great Art of Surgery, which was written by Paracelsus (1493-1541): “The most fundamental principle of Medicine is love.” I experienced the meaning behind this statement during my appointments with Dr. Peter Ford, a physician with Dermatology Associates of Sansum Clinic.
Dr. Ford listened to my concerns, answered my questions, and provided treatment and advice that not only improved the condition of my skin but my overall health and well-being. Through his manner of communicating, Dr. Ford exhibited empathy, warmth and cultural sensitivity.
