Five Reasons We Celebrate Physicians

At Carolina Pharmacy, every patient that comes to us has a unique situation and history. Our team is dedicated to providing tailored care, and we can’t do that without the help of local doctors.

Records show doctors have been around since the existence of ancient Greece, and they’ve helped solve countless pandemics. Here are a few reasons why doctors should be celebrated.

  • They uphold an oath to do no harm. Physicians go through years of rigorous training, starting in medical school and often moving to longer fellowships for more specialized training. In Medical School, medical students take the Hippocratic Oath, which is an ancient oath written by Hippocrates. The oath – which promises to treat the sick to the best of their ability, share educational learnings with the next generation, protect patients’ privacy and more – is a generations-old tradition that taken seriously by physicians.
  • They care about you. Patients with chronic conditions such as heart disease see their doctors routinely and develop a relationship with their care teams. Doctors go above and beyond, offering their cell phone numbers if patients have additional questions, and providing important counsel as patients consider surgery or a change to their prescribed medicines.
  • They are trusted partners. As we work with you to determine the best prescription to meet your needs, we also review your case history and consult with your physician. Your physician knows your medical history well. By working together as a team, we ensure that you have the best prescription to meet your unique needs.
  • They are there for their patients, no matter what. Physicians work long hours and take call at local hospitals, ensuring they are available in case of an emergency overnight and into the early morning. Patients are transported emergently to Emergency Departments 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Doctors work with a team of nurses, technicians, physician assistants, mobile medicine professionals, EMTs and more as emergency cases come in at a moment’s notice.
  • They never stop learning. Research and innovation drive the future of medicine forward. Thanks to modern medicine, populations are living longer, and medical professionals are working hard to treat conditions that occur with aging populations. As medical professionals study different disease states and new devices aimed at helping particular conditions, such as genetic heart defects, they dedicate countless hours to bettering your health. Doctors are scientists, too, and each new discovery gets us closer to a chronically healthy community.

As you head to your next doctor’s appointment virtually or in person, remember to take some time to thank your care team.
