Because Press-Ganey is such a big deal lately, I've been trying my best to be more likable to my patients.
I've been mostly trying to be an attentive doctor, because I think that's the right way to be likable. But I think there's an element of charisma that adds to likability, in spite of any medical care you provide. That's not something that comes natural to me.
So I've been trying to be as NICE as I can. I've been trying to smile a lot... I literally am constantly aware of whether there's a smile on my face, and if there isn't one, I try to put one there, unless we're talking about something sad, in which case, I furrow my brow attentively. I feel like a freaking saleslady.
Tips? Tricks? Advice? How do I get people to like me?
