There are those who may have regarded the traditional greeting with some irritation and perhaps cynicism as well in the sense that they are perhaps thinking along the following lines. What’s in it for him? And whose business is it how I am feeling? But spare a thought for those who approach this greeting with some trepidation. They may already be scared and they may never have been this uncertain about themselves and their lives. But in opening the psychiatric treatment in provo, ut it is the good doctor’s duty to begin the process of providing at least some reassurance.
That the patient will ultimately be getting better. What a coincidence of wordings. Patients. Patience. Patients are the men, women and children the clinical psychiatrists are taking good care of. And there is one attribute of these highly qualified men and women well worth remarking about. It is an attribute well worth taking home with you tonight. Of course, it is not so easy when you are about to become a patient. Patience. That is the one thing the psychiatrists have in buckets, and it is something that you will need too.
Because getting better is not going to be an overnight process, that is perhaps something the cynic chooses to ignore. Of course, it is a different kettle of fish for the highly strung and quite anxious patient. Nevertheless, the clinical psychiatrist should be able to begin the process of calming the patient’s nerves within the first session by providing him or her with a prescription for, let’s just say, antidepressants. And do note too, that this highly qualified medical practitioner is probably one of a few who are legally allowed to do so.
