Before you examine the body of a patient, 
Be patient to learn his story. 
For once you learn his story, 
You will also come to know 
His body.

Before you diagnose any sickness, 
Make sure there is no sickness in the mind or heart. 
For the emotions in a man's moon or sun, 
Can point to the sickness in 
Any one of his other parts.

Before you treat a man with a condition, 
Know that not all cures can heal all people. 
For the chemistry that works on one patient, 
May not work for the next, 
Because even medicine has its own 
Conditions.

Before asserting a prognosis on any patient, 
Always be objective and never subjective. 
For telling a man that he will win the treasure of life, 
But then later discovering that he will lose, 
Will harm him more than by telling him 
That he may lose, 
But then he wins..
