Doctor Who Values Listening from Bill Lampton, Ph.D. on Vimeo.

Dr. Dawson Conerly became a highly esteemed physician during his 55 years of medical practice in Hattiesburg, MS–45 years as a surgeon, then 10 as director of a Hospice program.

In this interview, he talks about:

–How working with Hospice patients shaped his philosophy of life
–The central role of listening in making an accurate diagnosis
–Other benefits from encouraging the patient to talk candidly with his or her physician
–How love from health care professionals enables patients to overcome both physical and emotional pain
