East Meets West

Kylie (our eight year old) gave me an early Christmas present: Strep Throat. It's been aching for days, so I went Doctor shopping this morning. My health insurance only allows me to see four Family Docs in Paradise (so much for freedom of choice in this Private Health Care Country).

This guy got me in to his office this afternoon:

Yes, he really does acupuncture. And he is no New Age, Pony-Tailed, Tweed-Jacketed Anglo Doc; He is Asian. Somehow I find that comforting...

He kindly wrote me a prescription for Cipro (so now I'm safe from Strep and Terrorists attacks) and sent me on my way.
