Dr. X is an amazing doctor. The biggest thing I learnt from him was patient interaction. Never seen patients loving their doctor so much. Truly the best to learn communication from! He is a great influence to students because he demonstrates how he keeps his patients above everything else. He also gives constructive feedback to his students and remembers details so well. He would always go out of the way to teach us and give the experience we need. He is also very understanding and cooperative when it comes to team work in the hospital, which is something that highly impressed me. It is unbelievable how he manages so much in a day. He also always made sure we learn about the patients we see and taught us how notes are typed
in the healthcare system. It was truly the best rotation I had in the US. Thank you so much for this!
