Appreciate the helpers
Thoughtful patients should therefore, make it a point to express appreciation to the doctor's gatekeeper, as well as to the doctor. Acknowledge that they have demanding jobs. Not only will this brighten their day (which is, in large part, filled with 'unrewarding' tasks), it will also increase the likelihood of their going the 'extra mile' for you when you need their services.
