They drive me crazy

Mr. Ophth: "Since the fall I've had trouble seeing. Everything is blurry and out of focus."

Dr. Grumpy: "Did you hit your head?"

Mr. Ophth: "No, but I broke my glasses."

Reminds me of the patient who told the ER Doc his main complaint was 'being really dizzy'. The knowing EP asked what had happened just before the spell of dizzyness: 'I was turning around in circles really fast', replied the pt.

dear lord, reminds me of the patient that came in for altered mental status. Come to find out it was his anti-psychotic medication making him this way. The family didn't want to discontinue the med. So he went home with altered mental status...sheesh

DO NOT SEND THIS PT TO MY OFFICE, I REPEAT DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES SEND HIM TO US... This is up there with "I dont like the last ophthalmologist I saw, my vision is still all blurry" "Do the glasses make your vision worse or better?" "Worlds better, I just don't like to wear them, they make me look old"

And it took a neurologist to tell him that??!! Who referred him to you -- they never thought to ask?

Reminds of that old "Three Stooges" routine:

Curly: I can't see, I can't see.

Larry: How come?

Curly: I got my eyes closed.

I hope they teach us how NOT to laugh at our patients in med school, because there is no way i would refrain myself from laughing in these situations. Either that or I'll be asking if I'm being Punk'd.

@ anonymous: not easy not to laugh but with time you earn a lot of self-control....
