I once received $1000 “bonus” from the son of a very grateful patient of mine. Although I felt a little funny accepting this “holiday gift”, I did, as I put in so much extra time on this challenging case.
Tips for doctors should be optional, a personal choice.
Reason- tips are generally mandatory for low paying jobs (waitress, home keeping at a hotel, hair cutter).
Doctors make a decent living without tips, but why not tip him/her as a token of appreciation if you are feeling it that day?
Interestingly, Sherri, some primary care doctors are reimbursed so poorly (by insurance companies and uninsured patients) that they make less than minimum wage when you consider 24-hour call, unfunded administrative mandates, and all the other crap they have to deal with on a daily basis.
I don’t believe physicians should accept tips. However, if they are being offered tips, its probably a good indication that their customer service program is working well.
I did appreciate a bonus of over a thousand dollars in travel accommodation from a well known New York singer. Although not an every day activity this adds confidence and pleasure to work. Dr. Gafanovich – http://www.drprime.com
