The doc rock

There's a doctor I've known for a few years, though yesterday was the first time I went to him for a professional consultation. Here's why: I had a knee injury playing basketball several years ago, and while it has largely healed, it occasionally gives me a twinge on the tennis court. That happened the last time I played tennis, I think at the end of January. Since then, I've had a little pain -- discomfort, more like it -- the knee gets stiff, things like that every now and then.

Luckily the courts where I play are closed because they are being resurfaced, so I haven't felt too miserable about missing out playing, which I would have otherwise.

Usually, the knee feels fine soon enough, but this time it hasn't felt fully OK for nearly two months now. So I went to this orthopedist I mentioned, yesterday. He was very reassuring, prescribed exercises and an anti-inflammatory pill.

All of which is just a long-winded lead up to why I really wrote these lines. While he examined my knee, I remembered his other claim to growing fame. Take a look.

My Ortho is a 80 plus year old relic who was apparently one of the first to take the Hippocratic Oath. He is also my Mom's Uncle and God forbid if one were to use another doc! Yours sounds more like a guy who'd let you in on the latest raunchy jokes!
