Note to self

Always, always, always trust the gut instinct. The gut instinct has never let me down. The gut instinct is what differentiates clinicians from physicians. I am a physician. I let the patient give me the answers. I do not treat X-rays or blood results. I treat people.

Go with the gut instinct. It's quicker and safer. Do not let self-doubt get in the way when a patient's life is at stake. Ask questions and don't back down even if the other person is more experienced. Seniority should not be an issue when a mistake could be made which would worsen a patient's condition.

Trust the instincts.
