stay for patient loyalty or transfer to a better job offer?

I HAVE TWO OFFICES.
(I WORK TWO DAYS a week AT OFFICE A AND approximately THREE DAYS AT OFFICE B.) by approx, i meant every other week, i work one out of three days in Office B because of specialists coming, i dont work the full 3 days every other week)

OFFICE A is 5 min closer to home and wants me to work another day. so I took it. Also, contrary to office B, Office A has better pay, W-2 and pays on time. Problem is I would have to leave one day at office B to get the job at Office A. (I had already given my 2 weeks notice)
OFFICE B doesnt want me to leave because Ive already developed a rapport with their patients.
I told office B I could still work with the other 2 days with her except for that one day.

QUESTION:
because I wanted one day less with office B, do you think the Boss in Office B will totally get rid of my other days with her and just get another RDH for consistency? or would she rather keep me for my loyal patients? (Note: I didnt think finding someone to fill in for me would be an issue because she had multiple hygienists before on different days but they eventually left leaving me with all their days)
When I told her Im taking one day less with hER, she begged me not to leave because her patients like me. She wants me to stay there. And some patients had complained about seeing different people each time.
She said because of conflict with the schedule, she would have to think about this particular case. And she’ll give me an answer soon. I hope she doesn’t fire me for asking to leave one of my days with her!

Sorry for the very long breakdown of the situation. but I’d Appreciate your response.

It’s hard to say whether the boss in Office B will totally get rid of you or not. It sounds like she really wants you to stick around, so she might continue to allow you to work 2 days a week. I would stress to her that you are still very interested in working at her office because you like working with her and you enjoy the patients as well. Explain to her though that the other office pays better and that you would love if they could be equal. It sounds like it is probably too late at this point since you have already let her know and accepted the extra day at Office A, so it might all be a moot point. I know it might be stressful to feel that you will lose Office B altogether, but let her know that you have no intention of leaving and would love to stay on board. If she feels that you are still invested in working at her practice then she probably won’t want to get rid of you altogether.

Can the patients that really like you be scheduled on the days you work and a new hygienist can build rapport with others?
