I know another Dr. Beebe out your way, and you might find him to your liking, since he's fluent in Italian. He is, however, a veterinarian.
A veterinarian might be just the thing for me. This Dr. Beebe grew up on a dairy farm in Eastern Connecticut, but as far as I know he does not treat animals, at least not in the office I go to. No perceptible signs that he speaks Italian, either.
I'd guess your actuarial clients don't have a clue that you speak Italian?
They certainly haven't heard me do it. A few of them know of my interest.
Good that you are moving forward on getting this condition taken care of, although the prospect of surgery doesn’t sound fun. We were worried about you on this trip as we saw you in pain.
