Poets and Psychiatrists: What do they have in Common?

Many thanks to Richard Berlin, MD, a psychiatrist and poet, who joined me on "The Art of Medicine with Dr. Andrew Wilner." Dr. Berlin is the perfect person to address the question of what poets and psychiatrists have in common!

Dr. Berlin has been writing poetry for decades. He was kind enough to read one of his thoughtful poems during the program-A lobsterman and a psychiatrist meet on an island. What do they see?

We also had an interesting discussion regarding the parallels between the practice of poetry and the practice of medicine and how each discipline complements the other.
