Does a Doctor say Thank you

Happy Mother’s Day Moms.  Today , I was at the pool and a well-respected Doctor asked me a very important question.  When a patient gives him a gift, does he have to write a thank you note.   He said that the patient was thanking him so why should he.

Does a thank you gift require a thank you card.  The answer is YES and hopefully written from him and not his secretary.

For any gift received a THANK YOU is a MUST!!!!

    Funny, I’ve wondered about that to and only recently started to dictate, but write a little something too before it’s mailed. I figured it’s better than nothing especially since all Thank you’s are held in such hi regard. Thank you for the confirmation- it helps motivate!
