I have learned, that there is a line between Patient and Physician professionalism. I would not advocate bringing anything to any Physician; as it's not really appropriate! I have a friend who brings her Physician presents for his birthday, holidays, etcetera, and she thinks it's appropriate ,and that she deserves some reward! I just wouldn't cross that fine line; however, everyone has their own opinions and makes their own decisions about what they feel is right for themselves! I wish you the best in making your own decision in this matter! I didn't mean to persuade, or discourage your own decision I was honestly offering my best and honest opinion!
I hope this somehow helps you in making the best decision for yourself! Let me know how everything works out! I do however, bring my Physicians a complete list of questions and symptoms to every visit; so I can give my Physicians an idea of what has been happening with me since my last visit!

@rachelanne Hi, I presume this is in response to my post. I have a number of physician friends who always get many gifts from patients so it did seem appropriate, particularly when he was going out of his way to be helpful. Some of the gifts that I have known them to get are quite costly too. I consider my gifts to be token type of gifts.
