What am I missing here?

He’s three months short of college graduation.  His mom did most of the talking.  Two years, three symptoms, zero diagnoses.

His exam and his nodes were normal.  No need for tests; it’s dry air and bad posture.  He claimed he felt calmed. 

All this training, all this acumen, and I still don’t know what they needed.

Someone to listen. Someone to care. Sometimes that is all any patient needs for their $20 copay. Glad you could provide that!

Excellent piece WordDoc. Sometimes human connection is worth a lot more than any treatment or diagnosis.
