I learnt from Dr. Gulani about being compassionate to patients, colleagues and staff, about raising the bar on ourselves to deliver the best and about translating innovation into standard of care.
The difference with many physicians I have shadowed so far and Dr. Gulani is his commitment to patient’s surgical outcomes, vision better than 20/20, giving his cell phone, being on a first name basis, etc.
Dr. Gulani has given me a valuable insight into the true virtues and realities of medicine, ultimately helping me understand principles of compassion and thought that separates a great surgeon from a “routine”one.
Aspiring for perfection in every patient and aiming for >20/20 vision while many other physicians would be ok with 20/20 vision.
Dr. Gulani’s focus solely on the patient and the magnitude of care is yet to be matched by any other physician I have shadowed.
I witnessed Dr. Gulani’s great interaction and care for patients which gives them much knowledge of ophthalmology to a degree that “Patients know more than many other eye doctors they may have visited before seeking Dr.Gulani.”
Although I am still in high-school, Dr. Gulani had given me so much attention and time but most importantly, taught me values I will take with me forever.
Dr. Gulani has shown me how dedication to the well-being of others is fundamental to improving patient care as a physician.
Dr. Gulani, and now, I feel that staff should be a family that is developed through a mutually professional relationship. I admire Dr. Gulani’s work at sharing his approach to medicine to eye surgeons around the world.This dedication of patient care ranking well over financial incentive truly inspires me and so I develop both an understanding and growth in moral values as a student and as a person.
This experience will help me understand what fundamental characteristics make-up a world renowned physician and how I, too, can mature to be like one.
