I always liked my primary care doctor personally. He routinely welcomed me to his office with a cheery hello and a smile. We asked about each other’s children. We often discussed our respective exercise regimens, running in his case and pickup basketball in mine. For more than 20 years, we even confided about our ambitions as writers.
"Why I Almost Fired My Doctor" is from the October 16, 2017 Science section of The New York Times. It was written by Bob Brody and narrated by Kristi Burns.
