Talk of the Town: The doctor who ‘nose’ best

Jenny Schnabel

Well, he comes from a family of ministers

It's part of his history

It's my friend Dr. Philip Schlager with Carson Medical

He can be your new ENT.

This week I choose my doctor

I've not done that before

Recommended Stories For You

But I have become a regular with allergy shots

I keep coming back more and more

It is your basic office

To that I will attest

But Tish, Susie and Michele all smile

And that's the very best

His patients range in age

From newborn to 106

Ear and sinus infections, tonsils, cancer

There really is no quick fix

So if you cough, if you sneeze

Cover your mouth if you please

A sinus infection, perhaps you can't breath

These are probably signs of allergies

In conclusion, I just want to say

Ear nose and throat problems

Please go away

But bless you, Dr. Schlager,

And have a good day!
