As we approach the Thanksgiving season of reflection and gratitude, let's take a moment to express our gratitude for the people around us.

This Thanksgiving season, we encourage you to reach out to the people that make a difference in your life.

Here are a few ways for you to show gratitude for your clinicians:

  1. Leave a positive review on your clinician's profile
    • In our increasingly digital world, online ratings are becoming more and more important. Today, online ratings are considered more trustworthy than ever. Studies show that almost 80% of consumers trust them as much as personal recommendations. Clinicians need to have a strong online presence with positive testimonials from their patients.

  2. Write a note
    • You don't have to spend money to show someone you care. Although you spend time with clinicians in the office, many times, things are left unsaid. Or you don’t reflect on how much of an impact they have on your life until after. Writing a note also relieves the pressure of expressing those often difficult reflections face-to-face. This sentiment will be greatly appreciated.

  3. Drop off homemade goods
    • If you’re gifted in the kitchen, make sure to double the recipe this Thanksgiving to have enough for your clinicians to enjoy. Homemade treats are made with love and allow your clinicians to get to know you better.

  4. Complete the feedback survey
    • It seems that people only take the time to fill out a survey when they have a complaint. Filling out the survey when you have a positive experience gives clinicians the recognition they deserve, also provides them with valuable feedback to reassure them they are doing a good job.

  5. Thanking your clinician at the end of your appointment
    • Although this may seem like a simple gesture, taking the time to thank them at the end of your appointment goes a long way.

  6. Give the gift of celebration with Thanksgiving food
    • Unlike many other professions, many clinicians and hospital workers do not have the holidays off. Many clinicians will not be with their families, drop off some Thanksgiving foods so they can celebrate also.
