Credit Where Credit is Due

My heart sings!

A letter in today’s mail from an oncologist (granted, a cc on a letter to the surgeon, but still). Directly quoted:

As you know, Patient is a [age-and-menopausal-status-redacted] female who was in her usual state of excellent health until her primary care physician, Dr. Dino, astutely palpated a mass in the [specific location redacted] breast on routine physical examination.

Yes!! She mentioned me BY NAME! And even used the word “astutely“!!!

Now THIS is how to take a history. Pay attention, all you orthopods out there.
