  • Most doctors, police officers, city officials, fire fighters are not allowed to take gifts. It can be mistaken as bribery, and yes, even doctors can get bribed. Do you encounter her anywhere else? You could give it to her outside of work? I think it would be a sweet gesture, but you don't want to get anyone in trouble or risk an embarrassing moments as she refuses it do to ethics.

  • I think it would be sweet!

    but for some reason, I was thinking I heard a doctor say they are not allowed to receive gifts (has to do with the oath they take)... check with her first.

  • I think it's not weird but very nice and considerate of you. I'm quite sure she will appreciate it and be very gracious.

  • Just give her something very small. Like a card and a little carnation or smomething to that effect.

  • I think it is very very sweet of you. I had a doctor several years ago (he past away awhile back) that I always gave a jar of my homemade salsa each summer. He loved it and never said a word about not being able to accept a gift.
