BIS DER ARZT KOMMT. Aufzeichnungen aus dem Wartezimmer/ UNTIL THE DOCTOR IS COMING. Notes from the Waiting Room
About 140 pp.
Entertaining stories from the doctor’s office
Reading is the best medicine
Wouldn’t it be better if fish swam in waiting room drinking water dispensers? Why is the receptionist in the doctor’s office always so damned good-looking? Why is one physician so uncommunicative and the other so talkative? And especially: What does all of this have to do with me?
Mariana Leky carries out humorous field research in the medical practice. “Der Nächste bitte” is a book for everyone who wants to amuse himself and stay healthy at the same time. Because reading is the best medicine.
