       I’ve always appreciated doctors who are friendly and personable; add a sense of humor and it can be almost (I stress, almost) a pleasure to visit the doctor.  Why?  To me, personality and humor make the overall experience less stressful, especially if the doctor’s office is in a hospital.   

       Years ago, I broke my little finger (in 3 places!) playing softball (ah, men will be boys), and a teammate took me to the emergency room.  It was just luck, but the orthopedic doctor on call was one of the nicest guys I’ve met.  The joking and conversation almost (and again I stress, almost) took my mind off the pain.  Flash forward to a few years ago when I visited anENT doctor.  This one seemed very stiff, saying few words and never cracking a smile.  It had its uncomfortable moments.
