Doctor-patient relationship

Being a healthcare provider means meeting with a lot of new patients and establishing a relationship with each of them.  It is important to make each patient feel comfortable and cared about. Patients want to know that their healthcare provider is knowledgeable and is willing to spend their time caring for them.

For an effective physician-patient relationship, there must be good communication. This leads to positive outcomes by increasing the patient’s satisfaction, greater patient understating of health problems and treatment, and patients desire of returning for follow up visits. This takes dedication and commitment on the physician’s end. Providing support and reassurance to all who come into their practice is about passion.
