What Do Doctors Want For Christmas?

What Do Doctors Want For Christmas?

The holidays are here! And that means it’s gifting season. So we asked doctors what they want this holiday season.

From cookies to world peace, we received a range of responses about what our nation’s top doctors want under the tree. Here is what doctors are pining for this year. What Do Doctors Want For Christmas?

Quote:  Best gift is something homemade. Cookies or muffins or marmalade. This expresses a patient’s true appreciation of me as a person and as a doctor. When a gift card is ten or fifty it is more dependent on a person having their own wealth. But baking cookies is independent of personal income and is a true expression of feeling. I would rather get the cookies than the expensive tie.What Do Doctors Want For Christmas?

Quote: The best gift that we could receive is patients that follow our advice and find their health improved. We have chosen this profession to make lives more fulfilled and enjoyable. When these patients post their healthy lifestyles on social media sites for the whole world to see, we are able to join in the celebration of their achievements and know that we had a part in their amazing lives. There are enough pressures in the lives of physicians that have nothing to do with patient care that the simple joy of knowing that we have made a difference keeps us going. Fire up the internet with posts, tweets, photos and videos!!What Do Doctors Want For Christmas?

Quote: This year, I would love to be gifted with good health, happiness and ability to continue to be able to care for my patients. As Mahatma Gandhi said:

If wealth is lost, nothing is lost.

If health is lost, something is lost.

But if character is lost, everything is lost.

I hope to continue to follow my HERO – Gandhi.What Doctors Want For Christmas
