It’s no secret around here that we are FOR DOCTORS and FOR DPC … it’s in our DNA. LOL 🙂 Today of all days, lets talk about a “Gratitude System” Inside Your DPC Program.

Dear DPC Journal Reader, Physician & Staff:

WATCH LIVE NOW — Happy National Doctors’ Day, 2018 — Go Surprise Your Doctor!

A beautifully written blog by a DPC Physician circa 2014 tells us why saying the two words, ‘Thank You!’ is too often understated inside today’s medical practice environment.

So lets be reminded of what he wrote …

‘Thank you, sir, for letting me into your home. Thank you for trusting me when you didn’t want to trust a doctor.’ ~Dr. R.L., circa 2014 🙂

EDITOR: Seven Creative Ways To Say “Thank You!” In 2018 To Your Patient(s)

Gratitude inside a Doctor’s office is particularly important. Why? Because the Patient made a choice. And that choice is, YOU.

Author A. Stanley says, “Unexpressed gratitude communicates ingratitude.” 

Editor, Michael Tetreault of The DPC Journal/Concierge Medicine Today at the CMT 2017 FORUM in Atlanta, GA speaking to a large group or Physicians about the importance of patient-physician relationship.

When was the last time you received a hand-written thank you note from your mortgage company for paying your bill? It’s not that they or you don’t feel grateful. We just don’t consistently express our gratitude for little things.

How to Write an Unforgettable Thank-You Note [To Your Patients]

It’s exactly why you might need a Gratitude System, especially if you run a Doctor’s Office. Did you realize that since The DPC Journal has been around for several years, the article “How To Write A Thank You Note” is consistently and year-to-year in the top 4 most popular The DPC Journal stories! There is a reason for that, don’t you think? How consistently are you thanking those Patients who help make the wheels of your practice turn, possible?

If you don’t have a consistent gratitude system, I want you (and your staff) to read these three articles (above and below) and join the rare but beloved community of DPC Doctors that have designed one of the most important systems they’ll remember for years to come.

Oh, and thanks for reading this!
