Flirting is truly an art. Even if you’ve mastered the skill, there are situations when you can be caught off-guard.  Coming in for a consult with a real cute doctor can be one of those tricky situations.

Timing, knowing the right words to say and the ability to read body language is important.

Here are 10 subtle ways to hit on your physician...

1. Smile!

A smile can jumpstart the flirting action. Greeting your doctor with a smile, gives off a good vibe and make you both feel comfortable instantly.

Do not go overboard though and force it all throughout your discussion. Showcase your wonderful smile in good timing. Smiling when your doctor is saying you need to have an appendectomy will obviously make you look silly!

2. The Casual Chat

Being able to keep up a friendly conversation with a person you barely know can be challenging. But if you’re interested in your doctor you have to turn the charm on and start to chit chat a bit.

Don’t try too hard. Telling your doctor about how you’re feeling lately is a good start and it's something that your doctor expects you to discuss.

If you haven’t been feeling too good, let your doctor know and seriously listen to what he or she has to say. Try not to forget that you’re there to get a proper consultation. Hitting on your doctor should be your second priority, unless it’s been months since your last date ;)

You can also share funny things that happened to you during the week or during the day. Keep it brief and give your doctor a chance to react to what you say – your doctor's reaction will give you a clue if the attraction is mutual. So do not hog the spotlight, let your doctor talk too.

While chatting, don't forget about eye contact. It shows confidence and also it indicates that you’re interested in the person you’re talking to.

3. Spill Some Personal Tidbits

You want to get your doctor interested in you, so tell him or her a little bit about yourself. Choose carefully what personal info to share, try to keep the conversation light - hold off on sharing any embarrassing or scandalous experiences.

4. Subtly Let the Doctor Know That You're Single and Available

Here’s a couple of tips on how to do this.

You can get him to notice that you’re ring free. Touch your face a few times during the consult or pretend that your eye is itchy.

Or you can squeeze this on the conversation…

“I drove myself here, that’s the downside of being single. There’s no one around to drive you to the doctor.”

5. Fish for Info

Before seriously flirting with the doc, you need to find out for sure if he or she is unattached.

You can ask questions like...

“So doc what keeps you busy when you’re not wearing that white gown?”

“I’ve always wondered about something, do girlfriends or boyfriends of doctors go to them for consult? “

Or, if you’re having your consult in the evening, you can say...

“You’re a lifesaver doc, please thank your girlfriend (or boyfriend) for me for letting you work nights.”

6. Find a Common Interest

Look around your doctor's office and find a common interest. When you find one, appear that you're pleasantly surprised that you have something in common with him or her.

If you find that you both play tennis, then that’s opening for you to invite him or her for a date match.

7. The Flirt Laugh

You need to give yourself away a little bit and encourage your doctor to also make a move. Laughing flirtatiously is a great way to make it obvious that you’re attracted. Just don’t overdo it, that would make the situation awkward.

8. Flatter Your Doctor

There’s nothing like a sincere compliment to flatter and disarm anyone. Throw compliments appropriately and it will help your chances in getting a date with your doctor or even a free consult☺

Getting examined by a handsome doctor can give you that butterfly feeling in your stomach.

9. A Slight Touch Sends the Right Signals

When the doc hands your prescription, use your finger pads to touch his or her hand lightly. A light touch is enough to show that you trust him and that you’re comfortable. Don’t linger too long though, pull away at the right time and ignore the butterflies on your tummy :). You don’t want to seem too eager.

10. Ask for His Number

After all the flirting and you’re quite sure that there is something there, don’t be shy in asking for your doctor’s number. If you’re confident enough, hint that you’re getting it for “social” calls.

      It is illegal to date patients. Doctors will always decline. Stop flirting with them it is inappropriate. I bet this dr tay is not a real doctor, or they are so ugly no body wants to date them. And it is not illegal in most states to date a doctor if they are interested.

      I met this 6months ago, and from the moment I saw him I was attacked to him..I can feel he feels the same about me as he asked personal questions about me....he referred me to another doctor.

      So I am actually not seeing him that much,only when my child is sick then I visit the consultation room.

      So is it fine if I date him? Or let him know how I really feel about him?

      I won't go into much details with mine but my eye doctor who I have been going to for over eight years, decided one day after we would be in her exam room up to ten minutes after it was over and talk. One day she came in and walked pasted me to reach at a tray behind me while her hand rubbed my shoulder , then she walked back to her counter after she turned around and smiled at me. Second time about a year later for another exam when she was done, she pushed her chair away from mine chair and sat there with her legs spread , and asked me if I had any questions for her, and it don't have to be about the eye either. I seen up her dress and can give a description of what was up there too. Then she got up and left and the following year after my exam she got up from her chair , and proceeded to the door and held it open for me, then said she is finished examining me . and told me that I can go. But they after all of what happened before I said to myself that when I go by her I will reach up and rub my hand over her hand to see what she will do. I did that and turned to look at her and we both stood there for about thirty seconds and just looked at each other and she walked out. I went out after her towards the exit and before I turned the hallway to go out I made one attempted to look back at her and found her standing outside another patients room just watching me leave. Then she entered the other patients room and I left her office . I think that some of these doctors who are single are still looking , I don't know about her what she was up to at the time. We are around 10 years apart me being older and in very good shape.

      Its a one in a million chances that your doctor will flirt back. If you do find one run with it. I call myself "the special one"! He can take care of my well being and also give me knowledge that I have never had before.

      This is a nice article on flirting and I like it, but not very probable. If your doctor does ask you out he is liable to lose his licence and his job. It's in the AMA's Code of Ethics that the doctor has to swear by.
