So yesterday I get this email from a physician friend. . .
Subject: On Call 24/7 🙂
Some on-call text messages from my patients:
“I fell better just hearing from you”
“Good deal thanks!”
“Enjoy your family this week!”
“Well, it’s official! My husband has become a true Redneck!!!! Ayyyyye! Sorry I meant to send that to my friend!!!”
“Ok, thank you! Yay no needles for two weeks! Woohoo!!!”
Video of my patient’s pot-bellied pig 🙂
“So happy you got free!!!!”
“That’s because you’re awesome! Seriously, from both a patient and RN standpoint I can honestly say there just aren’t any doctors these days who actually take the time and care about their patients the way you do. I’m excited to be a patient at your new practice! :)”
“Thank you. Needed a little good news.”
“Thanks so much. You are a jewel”
“That is such great news! I’m so glad to hear that. Thank you so much for letting me know. I’ve been worrying about it.”
And what does my friend think of being on call 24/7/365 as a solo doc for her patients? Here’s how she ends her email: “Doctors just don’t get this kind of feedback on the treadmill (when their staff do all the communicating with the patients!) I love my patients!! I love my job!!!”
