English term or phrase: Caring
Cómo se dice CARING cuando se habla de un servicio (médico, dental, etc.)

Explanation:
It depends on your context. If it’s an adjective, as in “caring service”, the meaning is the following:

caring adj 1: showing a care; "a caring mother" [syn: {protective}] 2: having or displaying warmth or affection; "affectionate children"; "caring parents"; "a fond embrace"; "fond of his nephew"; "a tender glance"; "a warm embrace" [syn: {affectionate}, {fond}, {lovesome}, {tender}, {warm}] 3: feeling and exhibiting concern and empathy for others; "caring friends" n : a loving feeling [syn: {lovingness}]

I think I would use “cálido” if this fits your context. “Atención cálida” seems to be commonly used in medical contexts, for example, and that would be a good way to express “caring service.”
