As always, *Dr. Lesley Althouse's medical care and expertise proved superb! Her phenomenal skill and dexterity enabled her to extract that damaged splinter from the most proximal knuckle of my right hand. She's not just "book smart," she is remarkably adept and compassionate at removing pain-inducing, foreign objects, from highly innervated locations, on the most heavily-used finger, on my dominant hand!
