I found this article from the New York Times today particularly interesting. It's about doctors asking the right questions of their patients, and taking the time to understand a patient's history - rather than just "checking the right boxes." The author tells a seemingly negligible story of a patient calling about a headache - but by asking the right questions, the doctor on the line saved the life of that patient, who was suffering from a rare postpartum condition.
