Best way to thank staff at a doctor's office?

Asked by jenandcolin (2301points) September 10th, 2010

I recently delivered and had the best doctors in the world (literally- they are known throughout the country). They were amazing in every way. I would like to show my appreciation to my doctors and the staff. I thought about baking cookies, sending flowers, etc. I’m not really into any of the ideas I thought of. It is a very busy office (it’s actually a center for diagnosis). Anyone have any ideas of how I can best thank them for everything they have done for me?
(In the past I have brought chocolates and other gifts to doctor’s and dentist offices. I liked doing that but, I would like to do something else, maybe something more personal, in this case). Thanks!

$10 Gift Card to their favorite doctor as a co-payment should do the trick.

I can tell you that here at the veterinary clinic, food is always wildly popular.

Pay your bill.

Tray of home-baked cookies or brownies always worked for me on both the giving and receiving end.

Freshly baked and still warm from the oven cookies. I walked into the dr’s office with a broken collarbone and a concussion. They took such good care of me, I made cookies. They talked about that for a few years. Oh, you’re the guy that brought in the cookies. Still makes me smile.

Seriously, a $10 Gift Card to Olive Garden. it may not pay the bill, but it will help with the tip. food is big in the gift world.

I think something home-baked in a pretty basket with accompanying thank you note would be the nicest gift.

My wife baked cookies for the wonderful staff that took care of us and we gave the doctor a rather nice bottle of wine as a personal thank you.

A basket of fruit is a nice alternative since they get a lot of candy and stuff the women do not want or need to eat.

You don’t even need a gift card or flowers or cookies or anything. Just write a letter in a card and it will be shared. Seriously, that’s all you need to do.

Also, if you want to really be nice, write a letter to the CEO of the hospital or the chief administrator and tell them about your care.
