Stupid questions

Dr. Grumpy: "Here are the names of 3 hand surgeons I recommend."

Mr. Carpal: "Are they good docs? I don't want to see a bad one."

My inner voice: "No, you dipshit. They're all dangerously incompetent. WTF would I knowingly refer you to a bad one?"

"They were listed as the top three surgeons with the most malpractice lawsuits pending, Mr. Carpal, but they've won all their previous cases so I'm sure they'll do a fine job."

"I don't know what their surgical skills are like, but they're damn good at tree surfing. That counts, right?"

I have to be very careful when reading a bunch of your posts at once. Has anyone ever died from laughing too hard? ;-)

Because you don't like him?

Because they've read too many doctor blogs and are hoping you'll either look guilty or shocked.

Grumpy, I think they read my blog on "bad doctors" and got nervous. Sorry for making your patients paranoid!
