Thank you




Came in at 5 (or maybe 10?)  past 8 am this morning.

A nice surprise waiting on the table. I guessed it reached there yesterday.






Thank you dear patient-friend. I learned a lot from you (and my other patients) too.

You've made my day :)



I still remember this pleasant couple. The last time we met was in Ward C2 as I was walking out from the IVF OT. That was weeks ago.

In fact, I must say that I am good at remembering my patients' names. That is why, whenever I am done writing notes and Ida, my nurse is still busy, I would gladly walk to the door, look for my patient's whereabout  (they usually sit nearby outside my room) and when our eyes meet :), I shall call out her name and nod my head as a sign of acknowledgement if they sit far (as I don't think they can hear my voice clearly).

with either Puan or Cik or with their title Datin etc etc.
Not just name.
M.E.S.T.I. dengan title.



This is a lesson learnt from my IVF 'teacher' at FCH Hamburg.

There was no assisting nurse in his clinic during my presence, so I became his chaperone-cum-student, sitting next to him, about a foot behind so that he can walk past me without me having to get up to make way.

Every time after he's finished with a patient and after he had discussed with me about her case (in English, of course) and briefed on the next case, he would get up and walked out of his room towards the waiting lounge that's located 2 rooms apart and called for his patient and welcomed her into his clinic room. That humble. While this 'student' just sat, scribbling notes, then daydreaming of having that kind of clinic until the patient came in and 'she' greeted the patient;

"Guten Morgen!"

or

"Guten Tag"


So, back here, I have followed his practice.

Some of my patients find it surprising as not many local doctors would go out of their room to personally call in their patients.

"Eh! Doktor pula yang panggil patient?"


What they do not know is that, it (by remembering their names and by being able to recognise them thus call them in) somehow makes me feel elated.


Call it OCD.
Call it whatever you wish.

On 10, I would say 8 or 7.9 over 10.
I can remember my patients' names very well.
I don't have photographic memory but I love to remember my patients' names.
And somehow it disturbs me if I could not remember theirs (now, this is OCD)

When my patients meet me outside (usually at the shopping centre), I would aways address them by their first names, not just 'you'
Not to show off (.......OK lorr, OK, with a tiny element of showing off )
I could see that they were happy to know that.


One day, at the shopping centre, I came across a patient.
All I remembered was her son's name.
But I could not remember her name.
and I dared not tell her "I lupa la nama you siapa"
That embarrassing!
Then we went on our ways.
I felt so bad, searching hard through my 'hard-disk'.
Minutes later.....
Haa! Now I remember! Her name was A....A...
So, I walked back, searched for her and when I found her, I greeted her again, this time with her name.
Phew!
Nasib baik dah ingat. 
Nasib baik jumpa balik. 
Nasib baik betul.
Otherwise it can cause a whirlwind in my mind.



Anyway, thanks Nida :)
I don't like surprises, but after days of hard work (heheh, perasan), surprises can be well.....nicely surprising.
