It’s no secret around here that we are For Doctors … it’s in our DNA. LOL 🙂 Today of all days, lets talk about a “Gratitude System” Inside Your Concierge Medicine Program.

Dear CMT Reader, Physician & Staff:
A beautifully written blog by a Physician from way back in 2014 tells us why saying the two words, ‘Thank You!’ is too often understated inside today’s medical practice environment.
He wrote …
‘Thank you, sir, for letting me into your home. Thank you for trusting me when you didn’t want to trust a doctor.’ ~Dr. R.L., circa 2014 🙂

Gratitude inside a Doctor’s office is particularly important. Why? Because the Patient made a choice. And that choice is, YOU.
Author A. Stanley says, “Unexpressed gratitude communicates ingratitude.”
When was the last time you received a hand-written thank you note from your mortgage company for paying your bill? It’s not that they or you don’t feel grateful. We just don’t consistently express our gratitude for little things.

It’s exactly why you might need a Gratitude System, especially if you run a Doctor’s Office. Did you realize that since Concierge Medicine Today (CMT) has been around for over the past decade, the article “How To Write A Thank You Note” is consistently and year-to-year in the top 4 most popular CMT stories! There is a reason for that, don’t you think? How consistently are you thanking those Patients who help make the wheels of your practice turn, possible?
If you don’t have a consistent gratitude system, I want you (and your staff) to read these three articles (below) and join the rare but beloved community of Concierge Doctors that have designed one of the most important systems they’ll remember for years to come.
Oh, and thanks for reading this!
