A doctor's visit is seldom fun. The awkwardness, fear, nervousness and a mix of emotions come into play. In addition to this, the hospital or clinic atmosphere adds to give a weird feeling in one's gut. Whether it's a simple checkup or an injection, going to a doctor's appointment is presumably the least fun outing. Patients tend to feel differently when they're visiting a doctor. However, some doctors understand the situation and try their best to make their patients feel comfortable. They know that a doctor's visit can evoke several unwanted emotions and making the patients feel at ease is one of their priorities.
