Memory Issues

Saw a man with heel pain the other day. Treated his plantar fasciitis. Phone message from him the next morning:
I've been having lots of trouble with my memory lately. I meant to say something when I was in for my foot, but I forgot.

Please make an appointment to discuss the memory issues.

Of course:

He forgot to leave a phone number.

LOLs. I have a patient with dementia we're putting even odds he forgets his appointment this am.

Well Dino, don't you have the guy's number on his chart? Although it's irritating to have to look it up, it is possible, n'est-ce pas?
