Transcript of a telephone conversation between Ms. Melissa Landau and Charles Balis, M.D., Monday, March 17, 1997 at 9:25 am.

Dr. Balis: Hello. Dr. Balis speaking.
Ms. Landau: Hello Doctor. My name is Melissa Landau. I'm calling on behalf of my husband, George.
Dr. Balis: Hello, Ms. Landau. How is George?
Ms. Landau: Not very well I'm afraid. He's in bed today. He has a temperature, and no appetite.
Dr. Balis: I'm sorry to hear that. I hope it won't keep him down for long.
Ms. Landau: It will be a day or two I think. But he asked me to call off your meeting today and apologize for him.
Dr. Balis: That's all right.
Ms. Landau: He also asked me to say that he was...what did he say? "Just plain sick this time." Do you know what he means?
Dr. Balis: Yes, I think so. I believe George is trying to save me time in our next session.
Ms. Landau: He really does enjoy them, Doctor. He tells me you're very good at what you do. I'm surprised he hasn't been difficult. I know what he can be like.
Dr. Balis: When you take up psychiatry you discover new dimensions to the word "difficult".
Ms. Landau: Well don't you let him get you down. He's just a stubborn old horse.
Dr. Balis: I'll bear that in mind.
Ms. Landau: It was a pleasure speaking to you, Doctor.
Dr. Balis: And you, Ms. Landau.
Ms. Landau: Good day.
Dr. Balis: Good day, Ms. Landau.
