“What I enjoy most about being a GP is the great privilege it is to be a part of my patients lives, both through joyous and then also often very difficult times. Patients will sometimes share thoughts and experiences with me that they have only shared with a select few people and trust me with that information because of my profession and the high standard set by colleagues before me and to which I myself strive”
