When given this instruction, so many older patients have given me and my staff “that look” and then asked this question, I’ve lost count.

Is this a special kind of dementia?

    I’ve taken care of cardiac patients as young as 23 and as old as 102, in a mid-size hospital in Georgia, and have never seen a patient who didn’t understand simple instructions: “Take one of these pills three times each day”. Physician, heal thyself………and learn how to speak with your patients.
