Da Count-Dear Doctor: Part 2

We have found a new doctor for Calypso.  Since I ranted about the old one some praise is due the new one.

Dear Doctor,

We want to thank you.  Thank you for reminding us what a professional looks like.  You see we had a horrendous ordeal with the previous doctor.  While we will always be thankful that he got Calypso started on a treatment which began to restore her physical health, the way he conducted himself became intolerable, to put it mildly.  He raped us emotionally and financially and made it out to be our problem all while keeping us waiting for 2-4 hours each time went to his crazy compound.

On the other hand you had a congenial office staff.  The charges we were told to expect we accurate.  We had no more than a five minute wait to see you (miraculous in any office).  You treated Calypso with great respect and compassion and involved her family in the process.  You carefully explained how her treatment would work and what signs you'd be looking for to know it could discontinue.  You dealt in facts, not fear and manipulation.  You were not put off by any questions and answered them all thoroughly.  You restored a great deal of hope to Calypso regarding her future plans and a significant amount of faith to her family that someone out there can help.  You did so in a calm, rational, respectful, compassionate, and professional manner.

You soothed some deeply weary souls and that, before any medications were dispensed, was healing in itself.

How wonderful (and what a relief) that you've finally found a good doctor.

Oh, Hallelujah!

When care for the body is part of a full package of care for the whole person, 'tis a wonderful thing, indeed. It's just a shame that it can't always be so. . .
