    I wouldn’t use the words “patient” or “friendly” when describing Rat.

    That’s more than most doctors will do.

    A house call…anything like a duck call?

    How do you make a house call … give it a phone?

    You can lead a house to the phone… but you can’t make it call.

    There’s nothing patient-friendly about that examination gown.

    Dr. Rat (not to be confused with William Kotzwinkle’s character) spends more time with his patients than my doctor does. (When was the last time a doctor in the developed world wore one of those headband mirrors?)

    Add the word ‘now’ it used to be very common.

    When I was growing up in the 1950s, there was a doc up the street from us who made house calls. He long dead now. And I can’t remember when he stopped.

    Hey! Check it out! Rat is a guest star in today’s Prickly City!

    Well he at least stopped before he died, if that helps narrow it down.
