    I prefer doctors who are professional, know what they are doing, not over confident and literate. I can't remember a single visit where I noted what they were wearing.

    I always rate a doctor whom doesnt just whip out the pad and say you need antibiotics, those doctors are shocking in my book, and there is a good many around... I like doctors who are not adverse to discussing more natural type remedies, not saying total green hippy, but having an open mind to the topic...

    Have not really noticed what they are wearing either, am cool, think beach shorts and flip flops may be stooping a bit low dress wise.... LOL

    I like the doctors that view us techs as professionals and treat us with the respect we give them. I agree, I hardly notice what they are wearing when I am the patient. I also agree with the comment about open minded docs. Some docs out there are way to quick to prescribe various drugs for any ailment before trying or without even thinking about alternatives.

    Who do I relate to the best? In general I'd rather just see a PA or NP. They're cheaper for those of us without insurance and in many cases can treat your ailments just as well. I would trust the caregiver with a calm, respectful attitude the most. There's one specialist I see when I have to, he's a jerk, but highly skilled. The only reason I go is he's the best around the area for his specialty. I could do without the poor bedside manners. I like people who explain everything they are doing, and their course of action. I do the same for my patients.

    I don't care what my doctor wears as long as he keeps his pants on when he is doing my digital exam.

    I care more about his personality, intelligence, and ability to listen and offer sound advice.

    Shirt and tie would be nice. Mine wears black scrubs with a low vneck deal that shows off some of his chest hair and gold chains. Oh and he has huge advertisements for botox and lip injections in his patient rooms. Come to think of it it may be time to change doctors.

    In large part, I've had doctors do me more harm than good and I'm still paying for that harm right now. I don't care what they wear, as long as they PAY ATTENTION, put in a REAL effort (as opposed to just blindly applying antibiotics and saying "next"), leave the high horse in the stable, and LISTEN to what the patient is telling them. Given that, they can wear a clown suit for all I care.

    How do I like my doctor? Medium rare with a side of horseradish. Sorry, actually I prefer my doctor to have a loose prescription pad if you know what I mean.

    sweatpants, sandles and a wifebeater. As long as i can turn my head and cough without him smiling and winking at me works fine.

    I always tell my friends to choose a doctor that has small hands.

    I've been an HMO person for about 30 years, and the majority of that time I never found a physician I liked enough to stick with. When I did like someone, they moved on before my next visit.

    I have had the same woman physician for about 10 years now, in addition to the small hands, she genuinely seems to care about people and is often late, due to her willingness to answer patients questions.

    I think they all wear white lab-type coats over their clothes. I never noticed it much, I'm usually looking at their eyes to help me judge what they are saying.

    Psssst: ...its not a date you know.

    Maybe you could call him in the morning before you leave so you could co-ordinate to have matching outfits. That would be ssthuuper!


    What do you call someone who got all D's in med school?

    How often does your doctor dry clean his tie? Think about that next time he's listening to your lungs with the necktie dangling in your face.

    I've never noticed what a Dr. is wearing. I notice their behavior.
    I usually prefer women Dr.s as I've found them to be better listeners.
