Going above and beyond

I’ve had so many great doctors throughout my journey—not only skilled at their profession—but skilled at things that I consider nearly as important.  When going through cancer, you tend to spend a lot of time with certain docs.  I considered myself so lucky that I found great doctors really quickly.  This was largely thanks to friends of mine who had already traveled down this path.   
But that’s not exactly what this post is about.  Last week, I blogged about my fainting episode at the Dermatologist, but I neglected to mention what I think is probably the funniest part.  As I’m on my way passing out, Dr. Joanna Gammons asked me if I normally pee when I wake up from fainting.  FYI—this is not totally uncommon, and I actually did use to do this but I haven’t in awhile.  So I told her that.  Then she told me I could wear her workout clothes home in case I did.  Is it me, or is that going totally above or beyond?  I must put in a huge recommendation for Dr. Gammons and her partner Dr. Koprince.  I’ve been incredibly impressed but this clearly takes the cake.  If you are looking for a Dermatologist in Royal Oak, you must check them out.  And if you happen to pass out—no worries, Dr. Gammons has you covered.
