Putting patients before ego
Dr. Rivera-de Choudens was forced to cancel a case due to circumstances that were out of his control. He made this decision based completely on the safety and comfort of his patient. He was up front with the staff and the patient in lieu of protecting his ego. Although it was inconvenient for the patient, she really appreciated how Dr. Rivera-de Choudens handled the situation. I told him I supported his decision and respected how and why he made it.
