The Story of the Red Stethoscope

Dr. G’s Urgent Care – The Story of the Red Stethoscope.   By Dr. Mylissa Graber


The simple truth is that the red stethoscope is in our logo in the shape of a heart. When I chose it, I thought it represented loving care and a sense of warmth.
A little more research into the color red convinced me that I had chosen correctly for the logo—and now in addition to a great logo, the red stethoscope is worn by all our practitioners, myself included.

Symbolically, red has a whole range of meanings. Love, of course, is one of them. Red is the color of energy, passion, and action! It also symbolizes life, vigor, and health. When we are healthy (and happy) we often have a glow about us-literally rosy cheeks.

In traditional cultures, red stones rubies, and garnet were believed to prevent diseases and increase health. Red is also the color that can give you a sense of security and safety in your immediate environment.
