The article analyses the duality of nature in relationships between the doctor and the patient. This research was conducted in the context of M. Buber's philosophy. The dual nature of therapeutic relationships may prevent a productive dialogue and a speedy recovery of a patient. As a professional the doctor must find a middle ground in this duality through which he will become an ally in the fight against the patient's disease. The article presents an artistic example of the humane attitude towards a patient from A. Kuprin's story “The wonderful doctor”.
