This is why...
I had counseled a woman a few weeks back on how to taper/adjust her new medication to avoid side effects and find the lowest effective dose for her. She returned over the weekend to ask a few more questions and tell me she was feeling better.
Awesome Lady: Thank you so much for helping me. I have a few more questions.
CP: Wonderful. Here are your answers.
AL: Thanks again. I really appreciate your help.
CP: You are welcome. It's what I do.
<she walks away>
<does a 180 and returns>
AL: I almost forgot.
CP: You did. But you remembered.
AL: I had an appointment with my doctor and told him everything you told me to do.
CP: <GULP> Really?
AL: Yes! He said that was the best thing I could have done. He said your advice was perfect and I should follow it all the time. He was really impressed with your advice and said I was lucky to have you as my pharmacist.
CP: Well, thank you. That is high praise indeed.
AL: I always knew to trust you more than my doctors, but it was nice to hear him praise you as well. Just thought you'd like to know.
CP: Again, thank you. That made my day.
