I got some bad news yesterday. My doctor is moving and taking his practice to Portland. I almost started crying when he told me. I feel like I'm losing a family member. I suppose it's weird to have grown so attached to him but the man happens to be the best doctor I've ever had. I've never had to wait more than a day to get in to see him. He always hits the bullseye when it comes to diagnosis. He never treated me like "an appointment" to "get through". He always took time to ask how my life is going. He never treated me like I was a burden. On the contrary he always seemed happy to see me and genuinely concerned for my well-being. He always valued my suggestions and teated me as an equal.

I'm tempted to keep him as my doctor and drive to Portland when I need medical care...
