I’m curious how everyone makes your practice comfortable?
The most important comforts in my office are that I use sofas and armchairs instead of normal medical office furniture. Also the water cooler that also does hot water and a basket of tea bags, honey, mugs, etc.
Instead of little paper drapes for people who need to disrobe, I have a stack of old cotton tablecloths my mom sewed from calico years ago and didn’t want anymore…so much prettier and with better coverage! And similar for babies, I have soft flannel receiving blankets for the exam table and baby scale. Oh, and fuzzy socks on the “foot rests” (what I call stirrups with patients because it sounds so much nicer).
Having a family room is also extremely popular with my patients. Kids are comfortable and enjoy playing there and it lets parents really talk about what is worrying them (either about themselves or their kids).
What all do you do?
