Those who have had jobs outside of the medical field: In terms of appropriateness or inappropriateness, how does raising your voice in a doctor's office compare to raising your voice in other professions? Law, business, the corporate office, construction, customer service, etc.... Example: I use to work in a law firm, and people would raise their voice to argue over an opponent all the time (where I worked) and no one ever raised an eyebrow. I'm not sure it's the same in say the hospital ED. (I'm not sure if raising one's voice, and NOT yelling but just talking loudly, is considered to be unprofessional, a normal part of everyday life, or something else.) Your insight will be appreciated.
