Mmmmm. I don’t know. If a male patient called the workplace of a female doctor to try to get a date I think we would be saying something different. If you do shoot your shot I would give him a large window of opportunity to graciously decline.

LOL but in all seriousness he spends his whole day in an eye/ear infirmary…not running into him on accident anytime soon

Glad you are okay! Do it!! Just start going to a different clinic if he isn’t interested 💃🏻

Do it!!!!

My next question is what do I say—do I just ask for his contact info or like do I leave a message for him lol

This was a walk in-urgent eye/ear clinic so no appointments! He is a ophthalmologist doing his residency at this eye and ear hospital. I guess I could think of a reason to go back but also not sure if he’ll be assigned to me again!

Can you find him on LinkedIn? Idk if the medical community uses that though haha.

Did you use insurance? If so, wait til you get the Explanation of Benefits from your insurance company. It’ll have his name on it, and then you can call the clinic and ask to leave him a message. If he calls you back, then go for it! Waiting for the EOB will also put some time between your visit and the phone call, which will ease any awkward “doctors shouldn’t date patients” feelings since he (presumably) won’t still be your doctor at that point.

Do it! Just say you’d like to have his contact details because you have follow up questions 😂

It’s only awkward if you make it awkward. Call and try to get his contact details. If you sound confident I don’t think they would say no

Do you have any paperwork? His name might be on something. Also, check the urgent cares website. Sometimes they have pics of the dr on there and you can get name from there

Keep us posted on how it goes!

So I talked to my friend and she said it’s usually strict policy for doctors to not get with patients. Also with the possibility of them being sued for sexual harassment, etc., he’s unlikely to make a move. Basically I will have to initiate and then he may not reciprocate, especially as a doctor at such a young age trying to prove himself. I will probably just follow him and reach out on insta or something

Omg this same thing happened to me in my 20s I ended up in the ER from being slipped drugs in a bar (nothing bad happened except sickness) anyways it was the cutest ER doc and all nurses were saying he was crushing on me. He was doing nurse things to hang out like walk me to the bathroom. Anyways I spent a week or so hunting him down on social media to no avail. Moved on - I do hope he lived a happy successful life.

So my wife basically said she doesn’t want to have sex anymore. Don’t want to do anything about it. After couple kids, doesn’t feel it anymore. Also said it wasn’t anything I did and there’s no one else. I understand women’s body changes after child birth but can’t help thinking it’s gonna suck being in a sexless marriage. We’re still attractive and haven’t turned into couch potatoes…yet Happy Thanksgiving!

Also HSA vs FSA, as a healthy 26yo, which is right for me (High D only has HSA)
