The physician should be a teacher. Dr. Breker believes time should be spent with each patient to make sure they fully understand their diagnosis and treatment options so that together physician and patient can make well-informed decisions. The physician should also be a student and be ready to learn something from every patient. Patients usually have as much to teach the physician as the physician has to teach the patient. Lastly, he is pretty confident that humor can treat all disease states and he generally uses this to its full advantage.
