  5. 5.  From the beginning it was very innocent gifts or “tokens of appreciation” with baked goods. The situation rapidly escaladed to expensive colognes and watches. Was it wrong from the therapist to take the baked goods or should he had put a stop to it since the beginning?.  “Acceptance or rejection of a gift could strengthen or weaken a patient-physician relationship. If the gift is a measure of the giver’s gratitude, a refusal could be offensive. If a gift is an attempt to secure preferential treatment, then a refusal may be required to maintain the mutual respect and independent judgement that are essential to the patient-physician relationship. Thus, physicians need to think carefully and exercise judgement when deciding whether to accept or refuse a gift.” – Leonard J. Morse, M.D.
