Yesterday’s doctor/Walgreens/Mercedes post showed the medical profession in a less-than-flattering light.
This one elevates them to sainthood.

My wife Alison had some severe eye inflammations over the past few weeks. She has visited Westport Eyecare Associates a number of times. Most were last-minute appointments, including weekends. (They’re hidden in the former Terex building, next to the old House of Pancakes building.)
Dr. Barbara Manion and her colleague Dr. Jessica Yu have been amazing with their care and ongoing treatment. An added bonus is that their office staff is super-friendly.
But the most amazing thing happened yesterday (Saturday). Dr. Manion called to check on Alison. When she heard things were getting worse, she said she was on our way over to our house to drop off medicine for Alison to try. Minutes later, she was here.
A few minutes later, Seth emailed me again. He had more to add:
Five minutes after my last note, Alison’s cell phone rang. It was Dr. Manion calling to check in again — on a Sunday.
Sounds as if Westport Eyecare is special, well deserving of this “06880” shout-out.
But they’re also not unique. If you’ve had a wonderful experience with a local doctor, click “Comments.”
I hope for a very healthy response.
