paging dr. awesome

I didn't bury it.

The good doctor busted me working on this post and informed me that I could only mention his recent accolade "casually--buried in another post or something..." 

Not super buried...but his mother will love this post.

This guy is not just a great dad with a killer jump shot.  

[Here's a snippet of his nomination]:

"We would like to nominate Dr. Marc Tobler for the Physician Golden Thread Award.  Dr. Tobler consistently demonstrates radical loving care.  It's hard to think of one single incident where Dr. Tobler has given excellent patient care, because he demonstrates it on every patient whose care he partakes in."

Aside from the atrocious writing, (can't help it-I'm a former English teacher) I was left scratching my head as to what "radical loving care" meant. Surely my image of the good doctor smothering his patients with radical loving care right before stuffing them into the MRI machine couldn't be entirely accurate. 

Whatever "radical loving care" is, apparently he demonstrates it, and demonstrates it well. 

And if you thought this was his first stint as Physician of the Month...well, you'd be Frank Lloyd Wrong.

feel free to stick around, springtime. I love alliteration.

Now if you'll excuse me while I carpe my diem.
