Finally found him..........

Y'all know we travel a lot in our RV so having a regular Dr is sorta out of the question. That can make things interesting if you have health issues. My health issues are minor but still an issue.

Well we are in Southern California with family and Mr and I both needed to have our meds refilled. Brother-in-law referred us to his GP. However when I called said Dr was on vacation but I could get an appointment with this other Dr. Sure why not I was a needy patient.

So comes the morning for the 10 a.m. appointment, get in to see the Dr, one hour and a half later we are leaving. Yep he's the Dr I have been looking for many, many years.

Let me tell you just one piece of wisdom he left us with. Dr N said, "my purpose is to educate you and hopefully when you are knowledgeable about preventive care you will be able to live a healthy lifestyle. My main job as your Dr is to keep you out of my office".

Let me also say he was firm and quite direct, nailed both our personalities dead on as well as being compassionate regarding our lifestyle. Quite a feat for someone we have never met. No pandering from this guy him!!!

No matter where we are in our travels Dr N will now be our main physician.............hands down one of the best doctors I have ever had the pleasure of seeing.

I would hate like heck for you to lose him after you've waited for him for so long. But this man needs to be teaching just that philosophy in med school.

I like him!
