    Default Please Help

    Today I visited my doctor. I have obsessive-compulsive disorder. My doctor said to me: "I can cure you no less." This didn't make any sense to me. Is this another way of saying, "I have cured you as much as I can?"

    I think it means he can't cure you!

    Kind Regards

    I think it means that he can cure you- the 'no less' is meant to sound amazing, but it's not a very good sentence.
