Wednesday: For the first time in history, the office was not a fun place to be. The air-conditioning has stopped working and boy, what a tragedy that is! The temperature kept climbing all day and even the ones who can be counted on to shiver at least 364 days out of the year were taking off layers, drinking ice water and showing signs of quiet desperation by noon.

Patients: Doug, Carol, Mr. Nobody @ 222 Nowhere Lane…
Doctors: Dr. Bob, Dr. Smith

Good to know: Recreational marijuana use, Mother of 2. Wildfire evacuee. Recently moved. High PHQ-9 score (*risk noted). Appointment details. File notes.

It was fun šŸ™‚ And I think it’s going to work great in the real world.
