|Too bad I don't have a picture of Dr. Lightman's waiting room,|
it would be A LOT cooler than this one...
This brings me to the question: Have you ever been to a doctor's office that you actually felt comfortable in?
If I could redesign a doctor's office I'd paint the walls with warm and rich colors. I'd have inviting couches, love-seats and bean bag chairs with fluffy, textured pillows. The waiting room would be dimly lit and have soothing music playing to give patients a sense of relaxation. Magazines, inspirational readings and brain games would be on the side tables to pass the time. A station for hot herbal tea and (naturally) flavored water would be complimentary in the room. Plants would flourish near each window allowing the air to be fresh and clean.
The actual exam rooms would be almost like a massage room in a spa - soft lights, soothing sounds, cozy, etc. Basically the most comfortable rooms you could imagine to allow you to relax and feel safe to open up with your doctor. Even just thinking about it sounds nice, right?!
How would you re-design a doctor's office?
