"My principles when it comes to treating patients are simple.  First, treat any patient as you would expect to have your parents treated.  Second, ensure you provide clear and detailed information to patients and their relatives; repeat as many times as necessary till they understand before starting any treatment.  Third, always be upfront and honest with patients about prognosis and outcomes. Lastly always under promise and over deliver."
