You feel very gratified when a patient comes into the office looking well, and you can remember the time when they first came to see you — when they had a lot of joint pain, morning stiffness, had great difficulty getting out of bed, even coming to the office was very difficult for them. But now they walk into the office with a smile on their face, eager to go to work, sometimes looking at their watch wondering why we can’t see them quicker so they can go back to work.
As patients come and see us more frequently, they are not only our patients but our friends. And we share in their lives to a great extent. They share their pictures of their grandchildren or children with us, their anxieties — like any friend would share with another good friend.
