A recent dressing down I received from our family physician about my blood pressure and cholesterol levels sent me into a panic. At my next appointment, Dr. Melanie was able to talk me off the ceiling not by contradicting the family doc but by putting a different spin on what he was telling me. Yes, the numbers were a wakeup call, she agreed, but how I responded to the call was up to me. As a result, I am making lifestyle changes from a happy place, not out of fear. Thanks Dr. Mel!
