Share a patient story that stands out for you in your career:
A blind PD patient came to clinic very tired and ready to give up. Upon interview, I discovered that he was taking his furosemide at bedtime and was up all night going to the bathroom. His next visit after I corrected that, I found him much more upbeat and chipper. Sometimes it’s the simple things that make a big difference.
