    I’ve been living in my new town for a year. So I already got a new doctor, barber and preacher/bishop. As for the new dentist, haven’t found one yet.

    Or your new doctor/dentist/barber is young enough to be one of your children.

    Or, as George Burns said, ‘My doctor told me to give up cigars and booze … my doctor .. oh, he’s dead!’

    I find that younger doctors have more recent knowledge.

    The problem is they may know a lot but not about you and it may not apply. As one young doctor told me: ‘You don’t know what is wrong with you, I do.’ Fifteen minutes later, he came back and told me what I had told him fifteen minutes earlier.

    Funny, I’ve had more trouble with older medical personnel that haven’t kept up with their field. My current doctor is 62 and is convinced that taking aspirin every day is a really bad idea. NIH studies have shown that almost all cases of stomach bleeding associated with aspirin also involved H. Pylori, the bacteria that causes ulcers.

    One of the “oddities” of medicine. EMTs, nerses aides, first responders, ets., all have to be periodically re-certified. Although a few states have changed, in most states once you are a doctor, you are a doctor for life — no recertification necessary.

    I told my new MD I knew that I’d be a-dyin’ at 81..He wanted to know how I was so sure of that..
    “That’s what the speedometer will be stuck at when I hit the bridge on Sugarman road!”

    He made a note in his "hmmmm’ pad.

    His next doctor could end up being a nurse.

    The barber will be a hair stylist. He’ll be fine with the others though. Plenty of supply there.
