There are a few ways that we deal with patients who are stressed or anxious. Number one is our calming demeanor. I'm a yogi so we use a lot of breathing techniques but also, I think it kind of rubs off on people, you know, if you're dealing with someone who's calm, that's more calming. There's this mirroring effect that occurs, so we do that.
We also have a lot of amenities for comfort, so warm neck wraps, gentle demeanor is a big part of it, and listening to the patients. Patients who feel like they're in control are going to be less anxious, so we communicate as much as we can what we're doing. We use anti-anxiety meds for some patients. We use lots of really gentle anesthetic techniques for when we have to do numbing, and we create an environment where the patient feels safe.
