Musings of a Dinosaur

A Family Doctor in solo private practice; I may be going the way of the dinosaur, but I'm not dead yet.

Well, If You Look at it That Way...

So after bragging about my wonderful handwriting, I had to share this:

I saw a patient in the office today, very upset about something-or-other. I did my evaluation and counseling thing, then wrote her a refill prescription for her Ativan.

She took it in her hand, looked at it and said, "I can't even read this."

As my eyebrows flew to my hairline and I prepared to sputter, she added:
"Oh, wait; it's upside down."

Maybe she took two before she came to see you.

What does Ativan treat except to get the patient out of your office in less than 10 minutes ?

Too funny, Dino! Bet you nearly swallowed your stethoscope.
