Doctor dating former patient
I found later that others who went to him had only a few seconds to a few minutes with him during appointments, and that he sent in his nurse or PA to do the dirty work. At first I was not attracted to this surgeon, in fact, I was annoyed with him and tried to change doctors. At appointments, he spent a great deal of time with me, 20-30 minutes, and did all the dirty work like cleaning incisions, bandaging, etc.I really feel there is a mutual chemistry there, but am afraid to say or do anything about it.I am trying to find a way to let him know I am open to a personal relationship after the doctor-patient relationship ends.

It was just my leg, but I found myself admiring his hands! One of my friends says this doctor is probably just comfortable with me and uses the extra time to take a little break from the routine. I have never seen your picture, but I would bet that you are attractive.
I would preface my discussion with him by saying something along the lines of, "I appreciate the great medical care you've given me, but I am looking forward to the time when I will no longer be your patient because I would like to ask you out for a date, but I realize that you, as a doctor, are probably somewhat apprehensive about this even though the AMA doesn't prohibit doctors from dating ex-patients." Or perhaps you could say something such as, "You are a wonderful doctor and I've really enjoyed interacting with you.
