Dear Alzheimer's Association,

Thank you for your recent letter concerning a new Alzheimer's Disease support group in Grumpyville.

May I respectfully request you refer the person stuffing the envelopes to a neurologist?  The "enclosed fliers" about the new support group were nowhere to be found, nor was the local director's business card "to call if you have questions" attached like it said it was.

For that matter, you should probably have the person writing the letters checked out, too.




Yours truly,

Ibee Grumpy, M.D.

Novel (but ineffective) marketing ploy?

Did your EMR print that out?

At least someone remembered to put the stamp on it, it got to you right ?

That's what the letter would have looked like before the mail merge operation. Apparently that failed. This just shows brain-dead quality control checking.

Did you get the same letter again the next day? And the day after that?

Now what did I come in this room for?

Perhaps they forgot.

One of the risks of relying on inadequately supervised volunteers, perhaps? The Alz Assoc is trying to encourage MDs to refer newly diagnosed Alz patients to their association, to try to engage them and their families in some advance planning and in supporting them in adjusting to this devastating diagnosis.
Good idea, poorly executed. But please don't rule out the Alz Association, they do a lot of good...nobody's perfect.

And I love a good dementia joke as much as anyone...we're all whistling in the dark, those of us over 50.
