Angry Doctor

Have a good one yourself too

There is probably no evidence that shows that being wished a 'happy new year' significantly increases the level of joy one will experience in the subsequent 365 days, but angry doc is currently experiencing a warm fuzzy feeling inside from the well-wishes he has recevied from his friends (both in 'real-life' and via his blog or theirs).

So for what it's worth, angry doc wishes all his readers and fellow-bloggers a good year ahead.


  • For thousands of years people ave been wishing each other Happy New Year, and for thousands of years people have been enjoying the other 364 days of the year.

    So it must be true.

  • It's always nice to receive warm greetings but even nicer to wish all those around you.

    But, what would local doctors here do when they receive seasons greetings from their patients as a sign of appreciation.

    Just curious, know of some doctors who have "problem" with this and chose to ignore it - why?

    Angry doc, what would you do? It's against any rules?

    Cheers and have a good year ahead!

  • Thanks, guys.

    Actually, I haven't met any doctor who would be offended by a holiday greeting. I certainly don't know of any rule (written or otherwise) that forbids a doctor from returning a greeting. I myself usually reply with a 'have a good one yourself'.

  • Compliments of the Season!

    I sent a personalised Happy New Year ecard to a few doctors who attended to my kids. None of them replied! Strange....

  • Same here, guess these doctors don't even have the basic courtesy to respond with a simple 'thanks', would be nice or their greetings cost a million bucks or ...... now you know - if you know what I meant.

    It would be embarrassing to see him/her on your next visit.

  • and we all are just patients, another case, another number, nothing else - as if they bother.

    Honestly, patients do appreciate good doctors and I wonder if doctors appreciate nice and considerate patients esp. the regulars - I guess not.

    They should feel embarrassed in seeing us the next time. Not us feeling awkward.

    Seriously, a HAPPY NEW YEAR to you! is the basic reply that one can give. Even the security guard at my place can do that!

    Sad case huh?
