Goals and Dreams of Greenleaf Clinic

안녕하세요. 푸른 한의원 원장 나병진 입니다.

캐나다의 의료 시스템은 누구나 동등하게 의료 혜택을 받을 수 있다는 장점이 있기는 하나 대기 시간이 길다는 치명적인 약점을 가지고 있습니다. 또한 제2외국어인 영어로 소통해야 한다는 점에서 자신의 아픈 부분을 속시원하게 얘기하지 못하고 또 궁금한 점을 자세히 물어보지 못하는 단점이 있습니다.

저희 푸른 한의원에서 그런 답답합을 속시원하게 털어놓으시면서 의료 상담과 치료를 받으시기 바랍니다. 한방으로 치료 할 수 있는 부분은 제가 치료해 드리고 양방이 더 적합하다고 여겨지는 병은 양의사와 잘 얘기할 수 있도록 배경지식을 알려 드리겠습니다.

친절은 의사가 의사일 수 있는 첫 번째 조건이라 믿습니다. 자신이 왜 아픈지 그 아픔이 어떻게 변해 갈지 모르는 불안 상태의 환자와 의학적 지식이라는 권위를 가지고 있는 의사가 인간적으로 소통할 수 있는 유일한 방법이기 때문입니다. 언제나 환자의 아픔에 자세를 낮추며 귀를 귀울이는 한의사, 푸르른 나무의 쉼터 같은 그런 한의원이 되도록 노력하겠습니다.

늘 몸 건강, 마음 건강 하십시오.

Clara Kim, R.Ac

In many ways, my life evolved around eastern medicine. I was a weak child with many health concerns from birth, surrounded by herbs and medications. At a young age, I learned the physical and mental impacts that an illness can have on the patient and families fighting together. As my empathy grew, my compassion to take part in eastern medicine sparked. Having my father as an eastern medicine practitioner also played a major role in making my way to eastern medicine. Active volunteering and travelling greatly matured my views as an individual.

During my practice, many patients visit and receive treatments in hopes of improving their condition, but unsure. I believe in the importance of allowing patients to trust the practitioner and themselves during any series of treatments. With professionalism and experience, my goal is to achieve such relationships and positive prognoses.
