My visit to Dr. Back’s office was one of the most touching moments I’ve experienced in years. I am a 41 year old grown man and I teared up in her office because of her unexpected and genuine kindness.
I am not a wealthy person, so I wanted to check prices while reviewing the diagnosis of another unrelated dentist. I made copies of my x-rays and prognosis and brought them to 11 dentists here in Sarasota. Most of them refused to review my x-rays and insisted on scheduling a new evaluation visit. Some of them reviewed my prognosis and gave me their expected prices. Dr. Back was the only dentist who brought me back to personally look at my tooth problem. She even took new x-rays and consulted me. She understood my fanatical concerns and did all of all of this pro bono and referred me to the most affordable dentist she knew of.
I teared up because I was so touched by her kindness. When you don’t feel well, kindness is especially meaningful. Dr. Back was far more than kind. She is genuine in her efforts to help people feel better and comforting them about their concerns. I was shocked, especially after going to so many offices first. She was the only dentist who went so far as to look at anything other than my previous x-rays. And after all of that she even gave me a big hug.
While many dentist offices are successful businesses, Dr. Back is a human with empathy and a heart. She really does want to help people. The hippocratic oath that doctors pledge is much more that privacy rights, its an oath to protect and serve society. She takes this to heart. I am deeply touched by who she is as a person and not only my respect to her as a dentist.
Thank you so much Dr. Back. There are not many people in the world like you.
