Sandeep Kapur, MBBS, FACP, Practice Chair and General Medicine Physician: Hi, I'm Dr Kapur. I'm one of the general physicians here at Mayo Clinic in London and I'm the clinical practice chair. Medicine offers a unique opportunity to have a window into people's lives. But more than that, it's the opportunity to maintain people's health and wellness. First of all, we have a magnificent facility which makes it very pleasant to come in every day. And secondly is the people that we have here. We have a unique blend of diverse people that are working here that bring a lot of different areas of expertise all together. Working for an organization which is ranked amongst the best medical institutions throughout the world means that I come into work every day wanting to deliver the highest possible standard of care that I can. I'm very fortunate. I have a phone on my desk where I can pick up the phone, I can speak to any one of four thousand physicians. And I often will tell my patients, I may not know the answer, but I know someone who does. So the Mayo philosophy, "the needs of the patient come first", and what does that mean to me? I summarize it every day is PQRST. My philosophies are Patient-centered, that I'm Quick to try and respond to patients concerns. I try and be Responsive to their needs. I try and practice Safe medicine. And I try and formulate Treatment plans that patients can understand and feel they can trust in the treatment plan that I've put together.
