I was just reading the thread from "doctorwife" and wanted to start my own thread about AWESOME doctors. Who are some of the great doctors that you work with/for, and why?
We have a neurosurgeon on our staff who is just the BEST. He's awesome because he's a fantastic doctor in terms of skills... he really does a great job with his patients and they really tend to do very well and go home in a rather short time. He is very very thorough, and he leaves standing orders for just about EVERYTHING that we could need to give his patients so that we don't have to call him for every little thing. However, if he does need to be called, whether it's nine o clock at night or three o clock in the morning, he is always VERY courteous, very respectful of us, and he's just a sweet guy. He is available 24/7 practically for his patients and doesn't even mind if they call him from their hospital room! He is just wonderful and we are SO blessed to have him. We have a "doctor of the year" award every year (as well as a "nurse of the year" award given to one of us by the doctors), and he's the one that I'm nominating this year.
Then there is another doctor who I would almost swear that "doctorwife" was talking about. =) He also works with a group and is also fairly new, and he is young. He is GREAT. Just a sweet, sweet, respectful and kind person. He is so funny when he returns a page! He is like "This is ** ******, somebody PAGED ME!" The way he says it makes me think of... "Mighty Mouse is on the wayyyy! Here I come to save the dayyyy!"
Don't get me wrong, we have other doctors at my place who are pretty great, but those two are the ones who immediately come to mind when I think of great docs.
