While I was waiting to get an MRI of my hip, I thought: “I should be tweeting this.” But a blog is the limit of this man’s social networking skills.
From Facebook to Twitter, it seems half of the world wants to tell the other half of the world every mundane activity that they are experiencing: “Going to the mall!”; “in the car on the Lodge!”; “buying popcorn!”; “solving the global climate crisis!”
Still, I thought you might want to hear from me on the other side of the white coat as I experienced my MRI at Henry Ford Hospital.
If I had a Twitter account and was tweeting during my MRI experience, my tweets may have looked something like this…
Dr. John Popovich

All kidding aside, let me tell you that all of our physicians, nurses, technicians, and support staff during my experience were absolutely first rate.
Some recognized me or my name, so you might think preferential attention was paid. Some either did not recognize me or placed the name (I hope that is all), and treated me superbly as well.
One last word: You get a much better appreciation for what our patients go through when you are on the other side of the delivery. Good lessons for all of us to learn.
