Yesterday was a great day. Yesterday, I worked with successful, dedicated patients! Some days are just better than others. So, what made yesterday’s patients different?
Patient number one came in with a cold. She needed to be well as she was leaving for a one week trip to the Caribbean! Two years ago she had seen me due to a smoker’s cough and bronchitis. I convinced her that she had to quit smoking. She quit two years ago. Her savings from not smoking funded the trip to the Caribbean!
Patient number two was an out of shape, overweight diabetic who has been working with me for a year and following Diets and Other Unnatural Acts “Chicken Steps” to success. He no longer needs insulin. He looks and feels ten years younger. We are now actively weaning his blood pressure medication.
Patient number three is using his CPAP
Patient number four came in for a full physical. He is on his way to a better, “Wellthier,” future with plans to join a gym and work on every facet of his lifestyle. He is particularly happy with his new “90 day plan.”
I received multiple compliments yesterday:
“Dr. Segal, how much weight did you lose?”
“You look great! How did you do it?”
“My wife and I loved your book.”
Yesterday was a great day!
