I’m so grateful my patient trusted me enough to express openly how he had been feeling and allowed me the opportunity to intervene with proper help.
It makes me love what I do knowing my patients feel they are being seen and heard, enriching their doctor-patient relationship and ensuring quality care.
These patients simply want it to be known that we care, and we are here for them. I was more than happy to assist and lend an open ear.
He doesn’t really talk to anyone and it was nice to have someone to talk to who cared. He thanked me and told me how much he appreciated me calling to check in on him.
I feel so grateful to have the trust of my patients in helping them get the best care available.
Upon learning of my efforts and discovery, my patient, crying tears of joy, expressed her utmost gratitude, as she had been trying to get this situation resolved on her own and having no success.
I’m always happy to know I’ve helped patients manage their care with this program. The cherry on top is knowing that my conversation and taking the time to listen to them, possibly means just as much and sometimes more.
I think that sometimes a simple conversation goes a long way and I’m sure his son would be happy to know that his father decided to keep taking care of himself. These little moments are why I love interacting with patients.
I’m so happy I could help resolve this issue for my patient. He should not have to take on this kind of stress after a serious surgery.
This week, one of my patients called me and my colleagues “true patriots” for the services we provide.
As we were ending the call, he told me that he was really glad I had called him today. It really cheered him up and he was very happy to have someone to talk to.
