Mr. Jackson: Fine – no problems really.
Dr. Wilson: Good. Are you taking your medications regularly?
Mr. Jackson: Yes – taking them like clockwork, every day when I have breakfast.
Dr. Wilson: Any problems with them?
Mr. Jackson: No, not that I’ve noticed.
Dr. Wilson: Good. How’s the diet going? I see your weight is up a little since last time.
Mr. Jackson: Well I try, but it’s hard. Those donuts at work are tempting.
Dr. Wilson: Mmm hmm. How about exercise?
Mr. Jackson: I try to go for walks like you said, but I’ve been really busy. I get out once or twice a week. My wife and I are trying to do it together.
Dr. Wilson: That’s good. Doing it with someone can really help. Still not smoking?
Mr. Jackson: Yeah, doing good on that.
Dr. Wilson: That’s really great. How about alcohol -- do you sometimes drink beer, wine, or other alcoholic beverages?
Mr. Jackson: Sure, but I stick with beer so I figure it’s not much of a problem.
