In a simple routine of a doctor-patient interaction - the physician’s ability to diagnose and treat a medical condition is a major communications exchange. And body language—the gestures, postures, expressions that communicate physical, mental or emotional states—is about 60 percent of the process.  There’s more to body language skills… and it’s worth the time, effort and training to be aware of non-verbal signals—your own, your staff and your patients.
