One doctor said, ‘Hang in there. I know it’s hard. I know,’ to someone you care about who observed ‘prayer’s not really gonna work.’ But in one-quarter of meetings where beliefs were mentioned, the doctor merely responded with a curt ‘OK’ or ‘Mhmm.’ A handful of physicians, in four of 40 meetings, still didn’t respond directly to the religious need but promised high-quality healthcare.
