I would never have guessed that I would be writing about medical speed dating, but it appears that anything really is possible and that includes the Doc Shop program. Yet I'm getting a little ahead of myself here. It isn't exactly what it seems to be.

The Doc Shop program actually matches up doctors and patients as a marketing campaign. Implemented at the Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital, the Doc Shop invites physicians and patients to interview each other in five minute intervals in order to find the perfect match. What a fantastic idea.
