Dr. Phil

Posted by laurie on September 7, 2012

Throughout my childhood my mother (like many Jewish mothers) urged me to marry a (nice!) Jewish doctor. Little had she known all the benefits that would accompany this. I’ve had a hacking cough for two weeks. Mike in the next office said his wife could hear me through the telephone (I shut my door after that). I’ve had no other symptoms and last week the doctor prescribed antihistamines in case it was an allergy. They didn’t work and the coughing got worse so I went back yesterday and was prescribed antibiotics, an inhaler, and codeine. And I had to get a chest x-ray at the hospital. Phillip was with me for part of my appointment and he told me to call him when I left so that his secretary could call “downstairs.” The hospital has an outpatient testing center (downstairs), where you sign in, then wait, get registered, get your bracelet, then wait, then eventually have your test. Well, a call was made and I was DONE in under twenty minutes! Phillip got the results right away and called me an hour before the doctor’s office did. The x-ray was “boring and normal”. Hooray! And I love my Jewish doctor!
