  1. ‘Be an opener of doors for such as come after thee, and do not try to make the universe a blind alley.’
    -Ralph Waldo Emerson

  2. Aha, non-compliance w/ADA!
    -the door+frame should have been planned and installed ~6″to the left from it’s current location (on the pull side there must be 1′-6″ clearance at the right of lockset)
    -instead of a knob there must be a lever-type handle, min 4″wide

    sorry, prof.deformation…

  3. My waiting room was furnished with antique reproductions and had newspapers with wood batten backing.

    That was long ago when medicine was personal.

    A GP I knew in San Juan Capistrano had a working fireplace in his office.

  4. My cousin is an oral surgeon, and his office is big fin de siecle Victorian house. The living room, complete with a fireplace, serves as the waiting room. He took the practice over from his father, who originally started it in the 60s, so I think it is a unique setup nowadays.

    When we were kids we used to help mow the lawn, rake leaves, landscape, paint. Any and all odd jobs. In fact, I may call him up to clean the gutters just for old time’s sake.
