I told my old trusted doctor (Dr. Chakwas) to stay behind but didn't get prompted of gaining an asset. I then tried to recruit the younger one (Dr. Michel) and she keeps saying she has to think about it. Does she join later, or am I glitched?

DR? I'm not sure I understand... – Raven Dreamer Mar 8 '12 at 19:55
@RavenDreamer I think he's talking about Dr. Chakwas and Dr. Michel. – Fluttershy Mar 8 '12 at 19:56
I think so too. – Sterno Mar 8 '12 at 19:58
yes I am :-) sorry about that. – will Mar 8 '12 at 19:59

Recruiting Doctor Michel to serve on the Normandy requires the use of a Charm or Intimidate dialog option (top left or bottom left of the wheel, respectively.) If you don't see either of these options in Blue (Charm/Paragon) or Red (Intimidate/Renegade), it means that Shepards reputation isn't strong enough to convince Dr. Michel to come aboard.

Go do some missions, improve your alignment, and then try again.

I don't know if I'd like to recruit a Doctor by intimidating him... – juan Mar 8 '12 at 20:53
How much does rep does this need? – Ben Brocka Mar 9 '12 at 3:26
@BenBrocka Not too much. I imported a Shepard with 100% Renegade and ~40% paragon from ME2 and had access to both dialogs when I first got to the Citadel. – LessPop_MoreFizz Mar 9 '12 at 3:28
