The Medical Doctor, before being a man of science and knowledge, must be driven by a passion for the man and the willingness to live the care of people who suffer as a mission. It is not always easy, but being always available to those who are suffering and seeking help is critical, even more when the suffering is mental, without visible physical wounds, but often much more severe, debilitating and destructive to many medical illnesses.
