If you have to see a doctor …

… then it’s best if he is cool! I have been ill for several weeks and, like most people, I have avoided a visit to the doctor’s office. Yesterday after being nagged by friends and family, I finally succumbed and went to see a physician. He had been referred to me (strange that in this city finding a good GP is a really tough job). I went fearing the worst. But the chap – a parsi by the name of Cyasp Nowsherwani – turned out to be very different from what I had expected.

He had a laptop on his desk (which for me was an instant winner – although if it had been a Mac I would have been more impressed). He asked how I was, to which I replied that unfortunately his profession was such that no-one dropped in unless they were unwell. He laughed – a doctor with a sense of humour? I was already beginning to shed my reservations about this visit. And when he said that cutting down my intake of coffee was unnecessary for my increased BP (taking a sip of his own coffee as he said this), he totally won me over.

As a subsequence of this visit, I have to undergo some tests, and some medicine was naturally prescribed but the pain of a doctor’s visit was significantly reduced … thank you Dr. Cyasp Nowsherwani. We could do with more doctors like you.

Note: And yes he is a good doctor too – he is treating me and not just a couple of symptoms

    I think I may have gone to college with your Dr. I was wondering if you could tell me what city you are in? The name of his practice/clinic.

    If it is the right fellow, I’d love to chat with him.

    Thank you,
    I. Jambik

    or…the next time you see him…ask him for me if he went to St. Francis in Fort Wayne, IN.

    The last I had heard of him, he was in medical school in the Dominican Repulic…

    Thank you….
