I am a registered nurse and am taking premed courses for medical school. I can definitely understand some of Dr. Konner's comments and thoughts, being in the profession for 11 years now. Bedside manner is imperative no matter how good of a doctor you are. I always treat my patients as if they were one of my parents/children. I enjoyed 'going through' his rotations with him as I am interested in the residency years of medical school. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to become a doctor or who is just interested in it. :)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
