Is it rare for a medical specialist to call you on his day off? is that professional courtesy, concern for patient, or nice guy?

Probably: If there is a concern about a lab result or an emergency a doctor may call you even in his/her day off.

Rare but nice: I call all of my patients the day after i see them to see if they have any questions or concerns. They love it!
