Despite the vast technological and socioeconomic changes that have occurred in medicine since I started practice 20 years ago, the basics tenets of practice remain the same,” says Dr. Zampella. “First, put your patient's needs before your own. Second, treat your patient as you would a beloved member of your family. Third, always be honest in all dealings with your patients and other physicians and nurses. If you adhere to these three rules, and keep up with your reading, you will always be a respected and successful physician.”
