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."
