    Dear Sir,

    I am writing as a matter of urgency with your scan results – they reveal early stages of a progressive condition for which I am prescribing immeadiate treatment.

    Acute lack of stimulation of the sensory organs has resulted in a marked deterioration of the digi-ocular (thumb/eye) co-ordination, this is potentially serious but treatable with any of the three non-prescrition options detailed on the enclosed X-rays.

    There are the latest medical treatments available and the earlier you start the course of therapy, the more likely a full recovery will be. Please make an immeadiate appointment with your local consultant so you can qualify for free Thumb Protectors to aid your rehabilitation (see reverse of card).

    I also urge you take full advantage of the 2 free Hand Conditioning Devices (see reverse of card) if you find any friends displaying similar symptoms.

    My best wishes for a full and speedy recovery.

    Dr Bosconovitch


    Immeadiiate treatment strongly recommended to counter the decreased digi-ocular co-ordination. CHoose from the three courses of non-prescription medication deatilaed. Consider Thumb Protectors and Hand Conditioning Devices for physio-therapeutic uses.
