  • It depends if they are a nurse or not ha! I always find it funny when someone isn't a nurse or a doctor and they wear scrubs.

  • I can't say I have ever really noticed, nor cared. If she's comfortable, I don't see the deal with what she wears... Or what the doctor wears for that matter... Care and Clothing have nothing to do with one another...

  • If they are not a health care provider,, whether doctor, nurse, MA, they should be in business casual attire depending on the office policy. Any place I have ever gone to, the receptionist was in business casual.

  • I think the receptionist should wear business casual attire inless she is handling medical instruments or other things like that.

  • I think if its the front desk they should wear scrubs or something nice. When i worked the front desk we had that choice.

  • I prefer business casual too. I don't want the person greeting me at the GYN office to look like she has been assisting with Paps all day and has patient germs all over him or her. The person at the front desk is usually the first person you see who works there.

  • Well I would say if they are in the health care profession they should wear medical scrubs that show the good professionalism. The white coats have been synonymous with this profession for more than a century.

    Today there are lots of scrub selling store that offers best quality medical scrubs. One among them is where you can find high quality things at the most affordable price point.
