Following are comments from Dr. Ajay Desai, radiation oncologist:

''Being a physician is very stressful. There are a lot of casualties of that stress. You see that in many different ways like depression, substance abuse. . . .

''The most important thing I've noticed is TM increases my productivity.

''I feel more energetic. I'm able to deal with a lot of those time pressing issues much better.''

Dr Desai's comments are featured on a seven-minute video documenting the positive impact the program has had on the whole atmosphere at the Center:
