Feeling Under the Weather


I know, I know, I should have gotten my flu shot.  But I just didn’t get around to it – what with being busy with work, and the new woman in my life and of course my kids – so now I’m sick and I need to see a doctor.  A while back I did sign up with a doctor though at the Community Medical Associates; his name is Dr. Donald Spigner and he’s been practicing for nearly 50 years!  He graduated from the University of California, San Francisco (although why I needed that information, I don’t know!) and he has a really great bedside manner.

So I went this morning; he told me it’s flu and to just rest up.  So that’s what I’ll be doing I guess.  Joanne was pretty good about it and said she had no problem having the kids this weekend (it was my weekend to have them) so I’m just planning on spending the weekend in bed to recuperate.  Nothing else to report; I guess the next thing on my to-do list is to get better so that’s what I’m planning on doing!

Community Medical Associates

I figured that since I’d already been in the hood for over six months, it was time to register with a family doctor.  I had heard some pretty good things about the Community Medical Associates so I went by and took a look. Conveniently located on N Progress Ave, the actual offices were very pleasant indeed. I liked the fact that in one place, there are both general doctors and specialists – I hate the idea of constantly having to go from one venue to another so this is appealing to me.  Before registering I read a great online review, giving a five-star rating, so was already optimistic. And, unlike a lot of the other practices, this one is accepting new patients.  So I’m hoping it’s going to be just what I need.
