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.
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.
|Wednesday (Sunny)||Clinic, Mother’s Lake|
|Wednesday (Rainy or snowy)||Church, Clinic, Library (2nd floor)|
|The rest of the week||Clinic|
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.

As you continue to raise your friendship points and heart level with Doctor, you can unlock heart events that allow you to get to know him better.
During the cutscene, your farmer will have to respond with one dialogue option. Choosing the correct response will give you 3,000 LP with Doctor, otherwise you will lose -2,000 LP.
Below is a list of each heart event and the requirements needed to trigger them.
|Heart Event||Love Points Required||Location||Requirements||Correct Dialogue Option|
|Gray (1)||0 LP||Mineral Clinic||
||“A little medicine never hurt anyone.”|
|Gray (2)||5,000 LP||Mineral Clinic||
||“Ooh, yay! Untested substances!”|
|Purple||10,000 LP||Mineral Clinic||
||“What could it be?”|
|Blue||20,000 LP||Mineral Clinic||
||“Open up your heart.”|
|Green (Confession)||30,000 LP||Any location||
||“Write down the recipe next time.”|
|Orange||50,000 LP||Mineral Clinic||
||“Your hard work paid off.”|
|Red (Marriage)||60,000 LP||Any location||
Remember that you can only view a heart event once you’ve successfully seen all the previous ones, so make sure you’ve checked every single one on the list!
Doctor is a marriage candidate. As you increase your friendship and love points with him, he will give you various types of medicine to test out as a gift.
