A white coat is symbolic, an indication of healing, professionalism, and has been for countless years in history. Patients surrender to this insignia, take pride and belief in your abilities to serve as a healer, their healer. The white coat is an indication of mastery, of expertise.
Wearing a white coat is a privilege, an honor, but with it comes responsibility. The patient sitting in your chair immediately becomes your primary concern, above all else, including yourself. You are responsible for the well-being of your patient and you must ensure your patient receives the best quality of care you can provide.
