    How intimately involved do you believe a doctor should be with their patients? I hope there are no super-sarcastic-type posters on this site. The question refers to the level of closeness/comfort exhibited between the two.

    Level of closeness…it can be VERY intimate…the most intimate relationship they probably have outside their parent or spouse…but it is a somewhat one sided intimacy…I get to know EVERYTHING you want to share, I touch you anywhere that needs it whenever the need arises (but the pt cannot touch me); and really the only time I share MY intimate thoughts with a pt is to either convince them of something or show emapthy ( rather than sympathy)
