I have found that when patients ask, “Do you have a minute?”, it’s often followed by a very interesting and relevant question or comment.
Taking the time to sit and listen to a patient is very special to me. Having moments to genuinely talk about what’s meaningful is so nice, and this often creates genuine connections. We, as Audiologists, should not be rushed when spending time with people who have placed such a great deal of trust in their care. Opportunities like these allow for a close and personal relationships to develop, grow, and prosper.
Our practice is dedicated to taking the extra time with each and every patient. For in these moments, we pursue relationships that are sincere and ones in which we become important to people’s lives.
For those who have hearing, balance, and tinnitus concerns, it’s “always worth a minute”… and more.
