Over the years, I have come to accept that medical professionals are getting totally screwed by the same flawed healthcare system. Medical professionals are all being squeezed by the same Government-regulated "Big Insurance/Big Pharma" profit-based guidelines.
Most medical professionals went into these careers because they truly want to help people. Deep-down the majority of them truly do care.
Whenever you encounter exceptional care from a RN, medical assistant (whoever) make sure you stop and take 10-15 minutes of your time to send a "LETTER OF PRAISE" to their employer.
I send 1-2/year, because I wait for exceptional care to present itself. I prefer *snail-mail* to email, as it adds the human touch.
Even saying something simple to a medical professional, like: "I can't believe the caseload they make you carry" can make you some fast friends. I've made several advocates over the years, by simply taking the time to acknowledge people --- and tell them that you care.
COST = $0.39 (stamp).
RESULT --> priceless.

~ This particular letter took someone a few years to earn. ~
am writing to you to let you know about the amazing patient care that I always
receive from your medical assistant, XXX, of the YYY.
have a ZZZ degree, and spent # years of my
career working at ZZZ in various
leadership positions. I am also a
frequent donor to your YYY campaign.
I am a frequent visitor to YYY, and have known XXX since (s)he started with
the YYY several years ago. The entire YYY team is top-notch from the
doctors, nurses, and administrative staff; However, I have officially concluded
that XXX is the glue that holds it all together.
has a very upbeat demeanor, a patient-centric attitude, and an incredible
ability to comfort me. XXXX's personality
radiates like a ray of sunlight that instantly relieves all stresses; (Her)
actions are impeccable (e.g., (s)he always gets that tricky vein on (her) first stick!), and (her) very presence puts me at ease
every time I arrive at YYY.
I can also
attest to (her) flawless professionalism when (s)he interacts with others on the
years of coping with chronic illness, I have encountered countless sub-par
medical professionals who simply do not care about the patient experience,
their employer’s mission, and/or helping to develop long-term loyal patrons; I
have to say, however, that XXX is definitely not one of those employees.
XXX is a huge asset to your team.
that Medicine is a profit-based industry, but with medical professionals like
XXX on your team all I can see is that *patient care* is YYY's top
priority. XXX's dedication
exemplifies the definition of patient-centric service, and support like (hers) is
one of the very reasons that I continue to interact with (and refer others to) YYY.
would be truly remiss if I did not take the time to write to applaud XXX.
you for your time and attention.
IF YOU WANT PEOPLE OF THIS WORLD
TO SOME DAY *PAY IT BACK*,
YOU HAVE TO -->
