Specialists

Dr. Grumpy: "Hi, Leigh, good to see you again. What brings you back in?"

Mrs. Skin: "Well, my internist told me I needed to see a dermatologist about this thing on my shoulder."

Dr. Grumpy: "Um... I'm not a dermatologist. I'm your neurologist."

Mrs. Skin: "I know, but I wasn't able to get in to one this week, and you had an opening. So I figured I'd ask you about it instead."

And Mary scheduled you to look at this suspicious skin lesion because . . . ?

I think she is smitten, you call her Leigh and she wants to show you skin.

Now , I have these floaters in my eyes and it makes it difficult to read the verification words, what should I do.... Oh, wait it isn't my eyes, the words really are hard to read---whew.

Generally, when an ESTABLISHED patient calls to say they need to see me again, Mary doesn't question them. Nor should she.

Well, that was a copayment well spent. I wonder if her HMO will cover it?

Maybe you should feel flattered.
"Oh no, my skins gone all funky. But I can't see a dermitologist for 6 weeks. Hmm, Dr Grumpy fixed my brain up, I wonder if he does skin?"

A specialist is a specialist, am I right?

I read this and now I'm humming "Head, shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes..." Thanks for the earworm.

I'm hoping the "thing on her shoulder" was a parrot.
