Doctor Dispenses a Dose of Music
Each week, a small audience gathers in the lobby of Lahey Clinic in Burlington, MA. Some are waiting to hear news about a loved one. Others are awaiting checkups, test results, or critical health decisions. Though most healthcare waiting areas have TVs and magazines for distraction, at Lahey, melodies from the 1920s and ’30s played on a Steinway grand piano by rheumatologist David L. Freeman, MD, help reduce anxiety.
