Set to music, too

Dr. Grumpy: "What can I do for you?"

Mrs. Windows: "Do you have Powerpoint on your computer?"

Dr. Grumpy: "Um, yes?"

Mrs. Windows: "Here's a complete presentation on my symptoms." (hands over memory stick)

To what music?

Grumpy, M.D. said...

It's was a strange combo of classical and 1980's soft rock.

Is it wrong to give a spreadsheet to a medical professional?

Mike Looney said...

As an IT grunt, let me just say this"
No

Just No.

If you hand me Power Point slide show on what is wrong with your computer/network/iOS device, it will be handed back, with a nice "Thank you, but no."

If handed back, I will turn loose my inner sociopath and explain what "NO" means.

This might not apply to professions other than IT. Your mileage may vary

Hawkie said...

YES! Please tell me there were animations or pictures.

And if you'd had a Mac, I guess she just would have found another doctor!

Wouldn't it have been simpler just to upload it to YouTube?

Mike Looney said...

Mary, there are several things other than Power Point that will "run" a Power Point slide show.

Plus current version of Office for Mac has Power Point.

Even the Open Source/Linux office "suites" can read it.

It's like a virus,it's damn near every where and hard to kill.

Congratulations! You won your AWARD competing against the "That is not Artisan" blog, one of my favorites.

Powerpoint should be taken out and shot. It's almost always about creating visuals when no visuals are needed.

I do maintain a spreadsheet that I give to any new doc but it's just a summation of labwork and the like and I give them a printout, not a flash drive.

Well, it beats having to pullllll each little history item from a patient who has trouble summarizing what they had for lunch.

did you encourage her to apply to med school, where she can channel that OC disorder for a living??

In fairness, I was on pills that disrupted my cognitive function and I had to walk into my doctor's office with a list of the symptoms I and my friends had noticed because I couldn't be counted on to remember them.

Oh, how I wish I'd had enough cognitive function to make a PowerPoint presentation.
