  1. I love it! As a doctor specializing in psychotherapy, I had lots of people brought to me all tied up—usually by family ties but sometimes in handcuffs.

  2. I’m no particular fan of going to the doctor, but since I just finished with a stress test, I can relate to the guy looking up the long flight of stairs to the cardiologist’s office. Perhaps this doctor(s) designed this part of the landscaping so they wouldn’t have to order any stress tests/

  3. You have such a fun job – nice work, Diana…miss your clever comments, though. I’ll bet the Post has a great collection of ‘office party’ comics for this holiday season, too.

  4. Too funny! I love the diploma one! I wonder how many patients actually do look at their doctor’s diplomas!
