Calm your little one’s fears during an examination. Or even act as a shoulder to cry on after tactfully delivering difficult news.

Your chance to thank him or her for providing exceptional care is coming this Saturday, March 30th on National Doctors’ Day. Set some time aside that day to let your doctor know that you value the care he or she provides and recognize the sacrifices doctors make everyday in order to better accommodate their patients.

You could call the office and leave a message with the receptionist, send a card, or have flowers delivered. But the best and easiest way to thank your doctor is to spread the word to other patients by leaving a review on Vitals.

Though you’ve found a keeper now, you probably remember what it’s like to search for the doctor who’s right for you. A fellow patient’s insights about a doctor can help narrow the field. And doctors are always grateful for public recognition of their efforts and the new patients that recognition brings.

So, this Doctors’ Day, show your appreciation to your doctor – and pay it forward to other patients – by reviewing your doctor on Vitals.
