Doctor is the owner (and literal doctor) at the Clinic in Mineral Town. At first he might come off as a serious person about his work and personal life, but he’s very passionate about medicine.

His birthday is on Autumn 19th. If you set your farmer’s birthday on the same day, his birthday will be on Autumn 25th instead.

It’s very easy to befriend Doctor since most of his liked items are cheap or accessible to the farmer.

 

Schedule

Doctor spends most of his time at the Clinic since he lives and works in the same building. However, he goes out every Wednesday to harvest wild herbs to use in his medicine.

It is very easy to get Doctor’s favorite gift, which is any size of regular milk.

Just make sure it’s not milk from a specialty cow, because those types of milk are only liked gifts (and are much more expensive to get).

Other easy gifts would be forageable grasses of all colors. He also likes spicy food!

He dislikes Chocolate Cookies except on the day of the Valentines’ Day festival, when it is acceptable to give them to him.
