Abstract/Summary The article discusses the art of medicine. It states that it involves empathy and compassion and it includes a non-judgmental and supportive approach where physicians offer advices to patients. It notes that the art and science of medicine is seen as a balancing act since physicians are to consider patients' preferences as important. The author believes that the most challenging aspect of the art of medicine is when the physician's ordinary expertise and clinical task end.
