Sunday night, 11:52 p.m.

Dr. Grumpy: "This is Dr. Grumpy, returning a page."

Mr. Levodopa: "Hi, I'm a patient of Dr. Brain's, and I have Parkinson's disease."

Dr. Grumpy: "What can I do for you?"

Mr. Levodopa: "Well, he has me on Sinemet, one pill four times a day. Is that okay?"

Dr. Grumpy: "Are you having any problems? Or side effects?"

Mr. Levodopa: "Nope. This dose has worked great for me since 2012."

Dr. Grumpy: "Then I'd leave it as it is."

Mr. Levodopa: "Okay. I just call his office every week to make sure, and he's out of town right now."

He's not out of town. He has your number on call-block.

does the OCD-like behavior come from the Parkinsons' or from the levodopa?

Did you tell him to make a follow up call to Dr Brain in EXACTLY 2 weeks?

So a doctor tells his patient that he has both cancer and Alzheimer's. The patient replied, "thank God I don't have cancer,"
