Yup, my girl passed but I want to give her doc something for his effort. He was genuinely grieved that she passed. Meant allot to me.

I gave mine a bottle of his favorite wine. He saved me from a wheelchair.

Yes, why not?
Their job's hard enough and if they go over and above, they deserve a little appreciation now and again.

Only time I gifted a doc is when I bought him a book I wanted him to read about chronic fatigue.

He said he read a bit of it...but since he took stress leave, he probably finished the book.@HootyTheNightOwl
@Wiseacre Hopefully, it will benefit you, too...

I think there’s nothing bad abt it. Doctors like to receive presents too. It’s a sign of good patient care usually

They don’t need our gifts.@BloviatingBuffoon

My wife worked in a doctor's office, and she enjoyed the food gifts that patients brought. The doctor always shared.

@exexec I don't know about gifting food in my case. I mean, would the good doc trust food from a husband after his girl died? lol Maybe a gift certificate or something. Or balloons?
My mother takes her doctor little gifts... I see no harm in it.
