treat (fast english)


current time:

Andrew’s a doctor, but he likes to think he has a special ability as a doctor. He can treat a patient as an equal. Most doctors treat a patient as a patient, and there is a cool distance. But Andrew doesn’t treat illnesses; he treats people. He really tries hard to treat equally all the people he sees regardless of their jobs or income or any other factors. If you treat depression or you treat infections, you are still treating a person, so you should talk to them as people. A lot of his patients can sense it and they treat Andrew with great respect because of this. They like him a lot.
