A Visit to the Doctor – More Lessons in French Life — 1 Comment

  1. I’ve just found your blog and have been flooded with memories of France. I told my doctor here (who is also the husband of a colleague and friend) about French medical practices. Boy did he get red in the face. I think that I wasn’t so shocked by the French doctor because I was young when I first went. I recall it quite clearly, though. Especially the part where the 50 year old male decent looking doctor told me I had nice skin but needed to lose a little weight. What Americans will never get about “Why French women don’t get fat” is the social pressure in France.
