Hi Karen, I just came across your note this evening and I'm sorry for your experience. When I had my office call to cancel your appointment, it was because I was, in fact, hospitalized with pneumonia. After an extended recovery, all is well.

I made an appt for issues on my face and cancer screening on my abdomen. He looked at me for minute and said Sun damage and left the room.
