Dr. Merlin Hamer, or "the wiz" as we called him at Hogwarts really had a way with the wand. As you can see from his picture, his youth potions are second to none. His training in wizardry compliments his skill and expertise in his hand surgery. He did a great job on my nephew's hand. You could say he gave my nephew a great hand job!
Dr. Hamer, or "Merlin" as he prefers to be called, is quite the wizard. He worked his magic on my torn dorsal interroseus muscle, and it fixed all of my grip-related problems. Now I'm back to sailing and I feel confident I can really grip my boom! Also he is stunning for a man of his age. I wish he'd share his secrets!
