Oncologist Gabriel Sara, MD, is a maniac about the truth. Whether delivering a tough diagnosis, or sharing his feelings with colleagues, he refuses to sugarcoat. It's a lesson he learned as a medical intern in war-torn Beirut, where the truth was a matter of life and death, and over the years it's become central to his practice. On this episode, Dr. Sara talks about how he uses radical honesty to build trust, empathy, and resilience. Dr. Sara is Medical Director of the Chemotherapy Infusion Suite and Executive Director of the Patient Services Initiative at Mount Sinai West. Enjoying Road to Resilience?
