The Doctor is In



The Doctor is In

There you are in Russia, sampling every vat of сметана (sour cream) at an overheated рынок (farmer’s market); twisting your ankle on your tour of Moscow’s cobblestoned past; or just channel-surfing in the hotel, when suddenly you feel an odd abdominal twinge…

And there you are 24 hours later, conferring with friends or the hotel concierge about medical care. Finally someone says, Пора вызывать врача (It’s time to summon a doctor.)

First, let’s just pause here for a moment: A house call! That alone should make скорая медицинская помощь (emergency medical care) more thrilling than panic-inducing.
