Prof Foo Keong Tatt "What makes a good doctor? Firstly, a good doctor is knowledgeable. He keeps up-to-date, neither under- nor over-prescribing treatment. 

Apart from being knowledgeable and competent, he should secondly, be compassionate. He should empathize and not just sympathize with the patients and he should not just be a good listener but also a good communicator. To communicate, we need to learn how to educate and teach our patients."
