Dr. Gus Krucke's knowledge of medicine and commitment to his patients is awe-inspiring. As importantly, he is one of the most decent, caring and compassionate human beings that I know. Gus touches the lives and hearts of the patients he treats in ways that are both profound and rare. Dr. Krucke discusses the practice of medicine and the treatment of patients dealing with HIV/AIDS. Dr. Krucke also reads a letter that he had written to a patient after the patient died that he uses to teach medical students about end of life issues and patient care.
