Medical science today is not static, on the contrary, it moves at such speed because each day, new concepts as well as technological improvements appear, imposing us to work together looking for knowledge. Modern Physicians must be conscious of this, but at the same time should not forget that the person who receives medical attention is a human being who, in many occasions, attends to a clinic, vulnerable, frightened, and confused as his bio-psycho-social equilibrium is altered due to a suffering. There is no machine nor the best medical journal that can substitute the understanding and dedication of a physician.
