Ever try to reach your doctor by phone during office hours? Or after office hours? "Leave a message, and the doctor will get back to you." Maybe. Some day.

I'm so glad my doc is in the modern communications age. He told me that if ever I needed to reach him, send an email. Boy, does that ever work! My V.A. doctor had a couple of questions to which I did not have the answers, so I emailed my private doctor, and the following morning there were the answers in my IN box. He had a question, to which I responded, with a question of my own. This morning - Saturday - there was the response. Don't think- it could get any better.

* Drive carefully. It's not only cars that can be recalled by their maker.

* If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.

  1. My clinic does that, if you pay an annual fee for the privilege and accept the limitations on numbers of messages and length thereof--which totally makes sense. But I've found it really really helpful to have email access like that, too. That and electronic records: a good thing!
