Growing up with a multitude of medical conditions, I’ve been inside my fair share of clinics, offices, and hospitals. More than my fair share, I’d wager. While there are obvious guidelines and standards that must be followed and met, and regulations, each has their own way of doing things. Some will try to have a bright, cheery atmosphere to create a positive environment for their patients while others keep things fully formal and professional. Some will have a television on in the waiting room, while others offer nothing but chairs to rest in while you have, and the differences in their Heating as well as A/C settings can differ greatly too in genuinely noticeable ways. The majority seem to use excessive cooling, their A/C lowering the temperature greatly for exceedingly chilly rooms. I always accepted this use of cooling as a preventative measure to stop the spread of bacteria, like with how you keep food cold in a refrigerator so it stays fresh. But there are some I’ve been to that split the mold with untypically sizzling rooms as well, either the result from little to no air conditioning or even from heating being on. These have constantly been smaller clinics, where the doctors and doctors on staff have more say in how they want their practice to be run than in a pressing hospital. These types of clinics constantly seem far more personable in my opinion, with talkative doctors and doctors who speak to you like you’re a person rather than a patient. Both types of medical facilities, personable and professional, have their perks and downfalls. The lack of inconsistency with doctors can be tiring when you have to see so several of them, but at least I think I’m being seen by a varied, and talent, team of professionals.
