Altruism in Medical practice

I have a concern about your statement that we should be concerned about the well being of the patients far more than our own (paraphrase).
I beg to differ. There is a fine balance. If we do not look after our own well being we can not do a good job taking care of others. That is why we see the burn out,family discordance, drug abuse etc. and the stress to the point of distress. In this case charity must begin at home.
