Is this person related to the hospitalist you mentioned earlier reporting the abnormal neural discharges?

"So far I don't think much of you as a patient, so we're even."

I let patients go for this with a note detailing how it is important in the doctor patient relationship to have respect, and if there is a lack it is time to move on. Sort of a dear John because you never loved me anyway.

Kind of the equivalent of a non-engagement letter for a lawyer. Read: I wouldn't get myself mixed up in your crazy shit for any amount of money.

LMAO - and what was going on at the time to receive such a reaction from this patient? I'm sorry but it did make me chuckle so thanks for the smile this morning :)

well, that sounds like an Axis II diagnosis to me! refer to psychiatry ASAP, and put this fellow on your 'do not accept referrals" list.

Realized and duly noted. I hope your are writing this stuff down somewhere, it will make a great medical comedy thing someday.
Uh, what, oh crap---nevermind.
