What do you love most about your job? Western med is losing touch w/the human element of care. We love being healthcare professionals who understand the impact that genuine compassion, nurturing, therapeutic care combined with appropriate evaluation, assessment, and treatment can make; especially when patients are vulnerable and in need of tender, loving care.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer? _ The best reaction we've gotten from a patient was their request to give us a heartfelt thank-you and hug, with a genuine smile and expression of gratitude on their face, at the end of a satisfying treatment that gave them results that exceeded their expectations._
