DR. DAVID HOROWITZ'S WORLD. When you go to his office for some of his expert wisdom, you walk into a world filled with FROGS AND OLD MEDICAL MEMORABILIA.

When you walk into his front door you see this giant frog standing with an umberilla besides one of the bathroom doors. The antique coat rack and medical bottles are in the little box to the right of the stand.

You are asked, by the lady to your left, which doctor are you seeing today? There are only two and they are not in alphabetical order. Dr. Harwell's list is the second lady behind the counter. You sign in and then you turn around to see a rather unusal picture for a doctors office and two small ones who really do not go with the middle one. These two small pictures have a drawing of a primative instrument on top with the actual instrument on the bottom. Then you are acosted by these huge cabinets from the floor to the ceiling filled with all kinds of different remedies of the past.

On the wall to the left of the cabinets are signs and pictures and then your eyes are drawn to the red machine in the corner only to quickly take note of the next cabinet again brimming with of boxes and bottles topped with what NO frogs.

The first time I went to Dr. David his hair was dark and curly. Puppy had just been born and my doctor was concerned with this mole on my big toe. In the window of Dr. D's office were around four or five different shapes and sizes of old medical bottles. That was IT no further evidence of his passion . Collecting. It effects us all but in different way.

Now his waiting room and exam rooms are full of interesting things he has collected over the years.

I have often wondered how much stuff he had squirrel away the first time I saw him. I had not had any reason to see him over the years until recently .Today his mane is silver but still curly .His officeis a fascinating place to visit. Since I love old things and history I could spend a whole day in one exam room.

Dr. David comes like a fresh breeze into an exam room flashing that boyish grin and before he even speaks the first word you know he is a friend. There is no superior doctor armour surronding him only wisdom and kindness.

I will try to show what was in my exam room tomorrow. Until then this furball is trying to figure out to start a tour.

The Kitty Justice would be for the Insurance Companies to pay for the tours as BRAIN EXTENTION.

Lady Di,

I love all the old memorabilia in these photos. I knew a man long ago that collected vintage bottles and medical paraphenilia. He had some great stuff. Thanks for sharing these lovely photos.

Michelle came home yesterday after conning her doctor. She is doing good. Thanks for your kind words, support and prayers during this time.

Hi Lady Di~~ I love all the pictures of your doctor's collections of all things medical. Makes a visit so much more interesting. Loved the paintings and people from your fun class on Tuesdays. Bless Mimi for tryin to help, and bless you for letting her. The painting of Prince's ancestor is lovely and what a lot of information you found.
Glad that you and Price watched the
eclipse. It was mentioned here too, but I didn't go out to look for it.
Take care, my friend, Love, Merle.

Glad you enjoyed both post. After going to Dr. Horowitz office the other doctors offices that I go to are so drab and uninteresting. Even his magazines are classy, like the New Yorker, New England Antiques, and Southern Living just to mention a few. I cannot remember but it is not suppose to do it for several more years and I wanted to see it. It was nice that we did not have to go outside, just look out the kitchen door.

It is different just like him and he is the only person I have ever been around that collects medical paraphenilia.
