My Amazing Doctor

Breaking a bone is truly traumatic
I'm sure that you would agree
So the doctor you choose is important
I know it was important to me.

From the hospital I was sent
To a man named Dr. Jacob Heck
After slipping on ice and falling
Upon my concrete deck.

Then at the doctor's office, the nurse
Praised him and all this worth
You would think that this man
Was the most famous doctor on earth.

I said, as I gazed around a bit,
'Is my doctor that kid in the hall? '
She laughed and said, 'Yes he is, '
But it didn't seem to faze her at all.

I enjoyed his unique sense of humor
He took my teasing really quite well
When I called him Doogie Howser
He rolled his eyes, yes, I could tell.

The x-rays looked bad for my ankle
Broken in three places he said
In the hospital everyone was ready
As I lay in anticipation upon my bed.

But he did a job that no other doctor
Could do better no matter the age
So thank you, Doctor Heck
For putting me in the recovery stage!
