"...the essence of the practice of medicine is that it is an intensely personal matter...  The good physician knows his patients through and through, and his knowledge is bought dearly.  Time, sympathy and understanding must be lavishly dispensed, but the reward is to be found in that personal bond which forms the greatest satisfaction of the practice of medicine.  One of the essential qualities of the clinician is interest in humanity, for the secret of the care of the patient is in caring for the patient." 

- Francis W. Peabody, M.D.

Advocate for Children
Introduction

Three things are most important to me: 1. being a good father and husband; 2. keeping a roof over our heads and a little food on the table; 3. advocating for those who have no voice and no vote - children.
