First week in breast surgery

I realised that the little things matter most as a doctor. Such as:

1. Popping in now and then with a big smile and a friendly hi! 

2. Updating patients on when they can be discharged

3. Telling patients right before surgery that it will all be okay…

You can tell from the way their faces light up that these things make a big difference to them, even though it only takes you seconds to do.
