“Hey Dr. Chandler!”
Is it normal to see your doc at Starbucks? Is it normal to see your doctor around town…grocery store, picking up the children?
Probably not your everyday experience, but it is with me.
Apart of having the small town, YOU-centered FAMILY Medicine experience, is adding the human characteristic, which creates more respect between doctor and patient.
I also believe that it creates the pages to the journal that is you and I (the doctor-patient relationship).
So….if you see me say “Hey, Dr. Chandler!”
Waves. Hugs. Introductions may be in order.
