684 words - 3 pages

The Positive Effect of Cancer
The film, The Doctor, is about a heart surgeons long journey from being perfectly healthy, to horribly sick, and his road to recovery. The doctor, Jack, is used to being the surgeon that helps heal patients, and in the process of recovering, he sees what it is like to in the patient's shoes for the first time.

Jack was diagnosed with throat cancer. The very successful surgeon became a patient. Although the form of cancer that Jack had was treatable, it is still a huge wakeup call for him.

Jack transformed from being a selfish, self centered surgeon, to a doctor that put his patients first and pursued the internal good of being a doctor, and three scenes capture every moment in his transformation.

Doctors that act like this are doing nothing but pursuing the external good of getting a paycheck for treating patients. Although doctors are meant to help and heal people, they can very easily get caught up in the money instead of truly caring for their patients.
The next scene is when Jack sees Mr. Richards in the parking garage. Mr. Richards locked his keys in his car, and Jack stopped to help. This scene sh...
