My father died of cancer last year.
Yesterday I received a letter from Dr Khurana (Canberra Hospital Neurosurgery) offering condolences.
Throughout my father’s treatment, the often stressed staff at Canberra Hospital remained sympathetic and supportive, even when my father became cranky and irritable. This letter from Dr Khurana adds to my conviction that we Canberrans are lucky to have access to some of the best medical professionals in the world.
In my opinion, Dr Khurana, Dr Yip and Professor Elsaleh of Canberra Hospital deserve the highest accolades for their commitment to treating patients with respect, good humour and a positive focus.
In a litigious world where complaints are often louder than compliments, I thought I would just note this example of a busy medical professional taking the time to recognise that his patients and their families are human.
