I look earnestly at the person across from me. Anger, frustration, desperation. I am intensely aware of all these tensions directed at me, at the clinic, at the medical system in general. I am also aware of the time. We have 15 minutes scheduled for this encounter. This patient is new to me, but the tension is all too familiar...
