Business Insight Presented by Arlington Dermatology I Want to Show Them How to be Polite With Each Other' Last week, our practice celebrated a very unique and joyful event; one of our long-term patients had his 90th birthday. He is a true frequent flier, with a chronic skin condition that has bothered him for most of his life. Like almost everyone over sixty, he has experienced his share of skin cancers and pre-cancerous lesions but the chronic condition still makes it necessary to continue receiving the light treatment. And he has been a blessing as a patient. Always on time, always patient waiting his turn, never complaining, always smiling, joking with the staff, trying every taste of our taffy candies, just the sweetest person you can imagine. So, we celebrated with the entire office staff and a cake, and more jokes. One of us asked him how it happened that he has always been so nice despite inconveniences of the chronic illness and now, inability to drive by himself. His answer will stay with all of us forever: 'I just want to show everyone how to be polite with each other'. We continued the conversation: Life is so difficult sometimes, and brings so many unexpected things, out of our control, but we still can be polite towards one another and it is in our control.
