Have you got a bad doctor, nurse, PA, nurse practitioner,
tech, aide, or some other professional?
If so, consider sending them a copy of this letter (you can
download it and customize it if you wish!)
This is a note to help you improve
your healthcare practice.
I find you to be a talented,
capable and intelligent clinician. You provide good healthcare.
However, your bedside manner needs
development. The quality of the technical care you provide is
sometimes lost because you do not show that you care about me, and my life.
I respectfully request that you
take time to look at your behaviors. When you do, you will see that
your patients need your compassion, with respect and humility, as much as
they need your expertise.
If you need more direction, an
excellent resource is Love Your Patients!, a book by Dr. Scott Diering, as
well as his website,
I hope you continue to improve the
style with which provide your care.
