Katherine’s Answer

Hi Devin, this is a great question. I'm a Nurse practitioner and based on my many years of experience working with physicians, the ones that have the most respect from their patients (and have the most satisfied ones) are the people that take even a minute or two of their time to get to know their patients. If that is not possible (e.g. the patient is in too much pain, intubated, etc.), just the simple act of washing your hands in front of them, pulling up a chair, and asking them how they're doing (great to ask family if they're present as well) will go a long way. Many of my physician colleagues have also made it a point to learn from their nurse colleagues on how to make sure the patient is well cared for and happy with their care.

Katherine recommends the following next steps:

Ask your nurse colleagues how they connect with their patients.
With the patient's permission, involve the family in your interactions.

I’ve worked as a pharmaceutical representative for over 20 years and had the opportunity to interact with 100s of doctors. I’ve also been at the bedside of family members going through difficult medical situations. In order to keep your patients happy, I believe you must be a compassionate advocate. Listen to them. Take your eyes away from the computer screen and get to know them: things like where they work, hobbies, family dynamics. All of that makes an impression on your patients. There will be times when you can’t fix a situation medically but you can calm and comfort your patients at their darkest times.

Melissa recommends the following next steps:

Talk with your family and friends about their best and worst interactions with doctors.
