My voice was raspy as I stepped into the 11th-floor office of Robert Welliver, M.D., at the University of Oklahoma Children’s Physicians tower on the Oklahoma Health Center campus. My nose was runny. I coughed as I sat down.
If I were seeking medical attention for my condition — diagnosed almost two weeks earlier as bronchitis — this would have been exactly the right place. Well, the right place if I were a few decades younger.
Welliver is chief, section of Infectious Diseases, department of Pediatrics at the OU College of Medicine and is on the staff OU Children’s Physicians.
