The Doctors: Should You Befriend Your Doctor On Facebook?
The Doctors welcomed veterinarian Courtney Campbell to the show and then explained that when it comes to Facebook, it’s always nice to make a new friend. But should you ever send a friend request your doctor or your patient? Dr Jennifer Ashton said she felt that it depended on the specialty. Dr Travis Stork said it can become problematic, while Dr Campbell said 75% of the people who are using the internet, are on social media, so it’s obviously here to say. He believes social media will be integrated into a patient-doctor relationship, so it’s up the hospital to create a policy.
