Nothing sad about GP's tropical surgery
Dr Alex Bobak's waiting room has been decked out as a tropical paradise to help patients beat the winter blues.
Two tons of sand and seven-foot palm trees shipped in from Barbados and Hawaii complement lamps designed to combat seasonal affective disorder.Dr Bobak, a GP in south London, teamed up with Virgin Holidays to create the indoor beach.
He intends to pass on the results to Virgin and scientific bodies. Dr Bobak said: 'We wanted to raise the profile of seasonal affective disorder. It's had a lot of interest from patients.'
