    I've yet to have any patient comment on me in a negative manner. The ones you would think would have a problem due to old fashioned values (elderly, immigrants from other countries), all respect me and take my word for gold. The biggest thing I have to mention is to always act confident in what you say and do in front of the patient. Many times they are questioning everything around them, and you have a to be the rock and foundation.
