Physical therapist dating patient
but I didn't want to start dating someone I had to work with almost daily (if it didn't work, how uncomfortable would that be? She found another job, so on her last day I took her out to lunch...we got sandwiches and went to a little park down the street, chatted for a while, and wound up making out in the park. It could reflect negatively on her to be dating a current 'patient', I wouldn't go there, and its only a couple weeks anyways.So here is the background: In high school I messed up my back pretty bad while working out. My first session was on her first day there so we talked about that, where we both went to college, and what plans we had in the future.Recently my symptoms came back so I decided to take a trip to the doctor to see what he would say. The therapist himself is very knowledgeable and adept in the field I like knowing that he can take care of it, but it is his assistant that drives me to go back. I really think we hit it off because whenever I show up she somewhat "hovers" around to check on me. How would I find out if she is seeing anybody or not? Any flirting or interest shown can lead to her being assigned elsewhere and have her job jeopardized due to professionalism.I'm fairly sure these laws are similar in all states.Someone would have to be really super exceptionally great for me to risk charges or loss in licensure!She cannot ask you out even if she wanted to because it would be unprofessional of her to do so. Don't load the invitation with emotion, expectations or any such thing. If she said yes, proceed to find out when "sometime" is best/most convenient for her.
Shaggy, Yes, it would be completely unprofessional.How would I find out if she is seeing anybody or not?If not, how would I go about asking her to dinner while carefully avoiding damaging her integrity in the workplace?I'd wait at the end because if she's seeing someone or isn't interested it may make your remaining sessions awkward. Any flirting or interest shown can lead to her being assigned elsewhere and have her job jeopardized due to professionalism.: S I've had the unfortunate events of that once and was told that a patient can't date a staff member and said patient made it even weirder by pronouncing that they'd go find another doctor to help me keep my job, which got me a glare and a talking after the check-up.
