I love my primary care physician, my dentist, and my daughter’s pediatrician. I also loved my previous doctor who LEFT ME (no, I’m not still bitter. Ahem).
The point is medical professionals who are awesome are great, and I know everyone doesn’t have that experience. In fact, I didn’t always have that experience. My daughter’s first pediatrician was awful, for example.
But now! It is the opposite! Why, just the other day, we asked my daughter’s current amazing pediatrician how much longer my daughter could be seen in the office since she’s 18. And she can be seen there until she’s 21!
But I would have been okay if the cutoff were earlier because then my daughter could switch to MY doctor who is equally fantastic.
See, my doctor came highly recommended to me by a friend, and I then in turn recommended her to my mom. In fact, I would tell anybody in town to go see my doctor because she is awesome.
What my doctor and my daughter’s doctor have in common is that they both LISTEN and PAY ATTENTION. They are also really nice, and I have never once felt rushed by either of them. I feel completely at ease with both of them. And, as noted above, my daughter feels the same way about her pediatrician as I do.
My dentist is super chill and her office is swanky and the cleaning chairs are actually MASSAGE CHAIRS. It is amazing. She is amazing.
Yay for awesome doctors.

I think doc’s that listen and pay attention are very rare these days… You’re lucky.
A to Z Challenge Letter E
I have needed the help of so many doctors and specialists over the last twenty years, so I totally understand how important it is to find the good ones.
I am glad you have found doctors who listen. Most important thing in a doctor. And your dentist has chairs that massage. So jealous. I might actually go see mine as often as he recommends if he had those.
You’re lucky that you like your doctor. I spend more time waiting for mine to come into the room than actually talking to her.
Interesting how that works out. Mary goes to a nurse practitioner and just loves her. She and I didn’t get along at all. Must be a personal thing, but when you find a good doctor, hold onto them.
Dentists, too. We had gone to the same guy for nearly 30 years, then he merged his practice with another dentist, but planned on keeping working. Nrxt thing you know, we get a letter announcing our new dentist. Turns out the old one had retired.
