Hi, I have a question on how to approach a doctor about shadowing. Last month, I had looked up couple of MD's over the internet to shadow them, and so couple days later, I went to the doctors' office and talked with them about shadowing. Anyhow, they gave me confused looks, and then, another doctor talked with me and told me that not a lot of patients come to their office since it is a small practice but I was welcome to shadow them. So I shadowed them. I want to shadow a DO and luckily, i found quite a few DO's around my town. The only question is how do i approach them. I am sorry that this is a stupid question, but I want to know that should I call them first or just go straight to the office and ask to see a doctor and ask if they let students shadow them? Thanks for helping!
