Patch Adams Essay

Patch AdamsThere are many drastic differences between the extremely respectable communication of the magnanimous Patch Adams and the almost cataclysmic communication of the normal doctoral staff of the respected medical school, the mental hospital, and the regular hospital that the medical students were trained at. These two different ways of communicating were considerably different in their intentions, their every day morals and values, and even their exceptionally diverse ways of treating patients.The regular doctors had acceptable intentions although they did not put forth any extra effort to make the patient feel better emotionally. On the other hand Patch Adams had great intentions of making the vulnerable patient feel better physically, emotionally, and in general to completely feel better over all.

But Patch went to help people, not just for the money like other students there did, no he went to help people, and he knew how, by communicating with the patents not by only prescribing them medicine, but by being a friend. And this is what makes an awesome doctor, one that can communicate with his patients, diagnose illnesses, and prescribe the right medication. Another intention that Patch had was to care for the patients, one of the off the wall ways that he did this was by acting like a clown and making the cancer patients laugh.
