The painting is heartwarming, delightful . . . and nostalgic. The family doctor attempts to win the trust of the little girl by pretending to examine her doll. The expression on the doctor's face is very convincing, though the little girl still seems apprehensive. The painting clearly illustrates that the doctor is a kind, much-loved and respected family doctor.
