The Accidental Patient - Part I

In this podcast interview, Dr. Burke shares what happened when he became a patient at the hospital where he works due to a tractor-trailer accident. He reveals why doctors in the ER often ask patients the same questions and the importance of having trust in clinicians. Dr. Burke details how being a patient impacted the way he provides care, reminds caregivers why self care is important to avoid Caregiver/Physician Syndrome, and why he has a primary care provider (PCP) for the first time in his life.
