Internists and Oxymorons

I got a letter today from a local internist. It featured this quote:

"His Alzheimer's disease is gradually worsening, but remains stable."

Sounds much like some of my customers "I'm not in a hurry, but how long is it going to be" (twenty minutes) THAT LONG?

It's long if it's THEIR time.

If it's YOUR time that's being wasted, they don't care.

Stability defined as a slow and insidious decline. I guess by that definition, none of us are stable.

Grumpy, M.D. said...

I think the less stable you are, the better you do in the medical field.
