She was a real-life person....
9 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

..... she was my doctor for years! I never saw this, but was just informed of this fact (by an MA who worked with her- I am now in the process of hunting this movie down!). She was (is) an amazing person who never used any problem or diagnosis for an excuse- this doctor would be triple-booked and sill manage to see all her patients in the time her counterparts took to see patients in a "normal" schedule! She retired and moved back 'home' this past summer (2007) and I can tell you, from myself and my husband, she is one of a kind and sorely missed! Dr. Mary, if you read this- Chris and Crystal send their love and miss you lots! :)
