"Hi, this is Mrs. Ramble calling. I need to make an appointment with Dr. Grumpy, who I think I saw once. It's not for the problem he saw me for then, it's for a new problem, but it's been going on for a while, so it's sort of old. Maybe it is the same problem, I'm not sure. But whatever it is, I think I need to see Dr. Grumpy for it, unless it's the problem I had before, in which case he needs to have a new look at it. So can someone please call me back tomorrow?"
