Narrative Medicine

"Patients tell us that I never really knew my doctor,'or my doctor doesn't know me.' They were never asked what's important to them. Narrative medicine is a patient-centered approach to the practice of medicine that rescues the patient's story and integrates what is important to them into decisions about their health care."" -- A. Scott Pearson
