Spring has sprung, sort of...

Dear Patients,

It's nice to see you. I always enjoy our visits.

Let me know what ails you. Runny nose? Back hurt? Need refills?

But please don't tell me something is wrong with you, because you are cold all the time for several weeks now.

I know it's the second half of april. I know we all really, really want it to be warmer out than it is.

I'm just as tired of my sweaters and thick pants, browns and reds as you are. I can't even bring myself to wear them.

My light cotton short sleeved sweater has me pretty chilly. Because the temperatures (yesterday excluded) are pretty much a nice day in January. If I had been wearing two layers and my down jacket I would have been right toasty.

We all make our choices. But don't ask me to fix it for you. Put on a sweater.

And please schedule your September appointment for "I'm sweating all the time." I can't wait to see your new fall fashions.

Dr. Smak

Ha..!!

My wife is, just now, wandering around the house in a fleece jacket and 'earwarmer band'.

Can you 'do' anything for her..??

RRNC has it right - you make me laugh out loud.
But I thought about "bitch" rather than "hoot".

Thanks for lightening my mood, whatever it takes.

I am always cold! I walk around the house in fingerless mittens even in the summertime when the air is on. You are cracking me up here though. Do people really do this?

Just take out their ovaries, and they will not be cold anymore!

I am working with a practice that has many people calling for an appointment, a specialty appointment, THAT DAY. A couple of reasons: 1) I need to go to Mexico on Saturday. 2) This has been bothering me for almost a year. 3) I want to drop my insurance in May.
