Teach Me to Number My Days

My patients routinely ask me, “Doc, why do these brown rough spots grow on my back? Why do my joints hurt so bad?” I respond with a smile, “That’s the price you pay for living so long.” We all grow old and our physical bodies become infirm. A good portion of my medical practice is […]
