So I went to the Podiatrist today for some routine maintenance.
This was a new doctor for me, and I was going in with a healthy dose of skepticism (until I know the person is good and trustworthy).
Well after the doctor does all these things, I test the waters and ask him, “So how often should I come back to see you every 6 months or more often or what?”
Here’s his opportunity to put money ahead of really caring about the patient and to say to come often and more frequently so they can make more patient visits and more money.
But instead he pleasantly surprised me and goes, “Well let’s see how your doing and take it from there.”
I loved it–some genuine honesty and not just business and a money-making racket.
Now, I really do plan to go back to this doctor regularly, because I trust him. 😉
