Victor Montori is a physician and researcher at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota (U.S.), participating in the care of people with diabetes. He graduated from medical school in his hometown of Lima, Perú and completed postgraduate training at Mayo Clinic, Rochester and at McMaster University in Canada. Considered “a patient’s doctor,” Dr. Montori received the Karis Award, a patient-nominated recognition for his compassionate care.
The Patient Revolution is, at its heart, a movement based on stories. Related to his book, Why We Revolt, Victor describes what is wrong with industrial healthcare, how it has corrupted its mission, and how it has stopped caring. We propose a revolution of compassion and solidarity, of unhurried conversations, and of careful and kind care.
