Welcome to the Museum of Physician Happiness. I'm your guide, Dr Arlen Meyers. Before we get started, please take notice of the emergency exits and silence your cell phones. You, over there. I said please get off your cell phone!
This museum was recently built to commemorate the golden age of medicine-1950-80- when doctors were joyful and happy before the present age of medical corporatization. We have provided you with the audio-tour so just push the button that corresponds to the number by the exhibit.
Please take your time experiencing the golden age. We don't want to rush you, not like your doctor does today.
We hope you enjoy your stay and appreciate your donation to the gift shop foundation.
