A Doctor's Wrong Notes

To the Editor:

Re "If It's Jazz, Doctors Win, Hands Down" (NYC column, Oct. 12):

The medical profession is liberally populated with amateur classical
musicians, too, namely pianists. As a classical piano teacher, I have
often seen my medical maladies set aside by doctors for questions
about their musical maladies.

One heart-stopping situation followed a series of medical tests, when
my internist introduced me to another doctor, who promptly requested
a private consultation room.

With my medical files in hand, the newly introduced doctor asked me
to be seated while he closed the door.

Pushing aside my files, he leaned across the table and whispered, "I
have a serious problem trying to read the bass clef."

In my most professional manner, I asked, "Do you have insurance?"
