The Quality of a Physician

Dr Deb Glaum with Mr Cat and Mooch

Dr Deb Glaum with Mr Cat and Mooch

The Quality of a Physician

should not be Judged

on the Knowledge

of the Science of Medicine,

but rather by the

Ability to Practice

the Art of Healing;

for the Goal of Medicine

is to Repair the Body,

but the Aim of Healing

is to Restore the Soul.

–Deb Glaum (2000)

[I wrote this poem to thank a doctor who had been instrumental in getting me through a difficult pregnancy and preemie delivery.]
