Faith and doctor

Colin Son: Is your faith important in your practice as a physician?

Dr. Leap: Faith is very important to my practice, because I believe that medicine is made better by faith. How is that? We are, after all, scientists (of a sort). How can faith, a thing so difficult to empirically quantify, make any difference at all? That's what people seem to be thinking today.
Faith is a reason to keep doing what I do in the sure hope that I can make a difference, that science makes sense because the Creator of all is good. And I believe faith gives me a reason to keep coming back and doing my job, since God calls me to love others. That doesn't mean I always have to like them, but I have a duty to treat them with love.
Faith gives me hope for myself and my patients. Faith tells me that however crappy life is, it isn't the end. It isn't a comfort to anyone to know they'll reenter the food chain and become recycled carbon, nitrogen, and other bits. The hope of eternity? That's a comfort that works.
And aren't we here to comfort the ones who come to us?
