Early Physicians

Note from Tina: I can verify that these men did indeed make house calls, in a day and time long past. I remember well, Dr. Thompson coming to my parents house when my brothers and I came down with the measles. We always called him “I’m going to give you a shot Thompson.” It seems that there was a shot for everything!! Dr. Swift was the man who pierced my ears when I was 16 years old. By that time, though, housecalls were on the way out and after much begging and pleading, I convinced my parents that I was old enough, and my Mom took me to Dr. Swift’s office for the piercing.
