Then why ask me?

Mr. Tophi: "Look at this thing on my foot. It really hurts. Is this from my Parkinson's disease?"

Dr. Grumpy: "No, that looks like gout."

Mr. Tophi: "Funny, that's exactly what my podiatrist and internist said, too."

Indeed, Mr Tophi. And remember, neurologists, internists and orthopods are really bad at treating gout. The time has come to see a rheumatologist.

PS: What do tophi look like when they do the Parkinson's shakedance?
(sorry, I couldn't help it).

Third time is the charm!

So how many 'second opinions' would you like?

Ms. Donna said...

OK. What's the code for a third opinion?

Actually, glad a neuro geek could figure that out. No nerves (except the pain-carrying kind) involved.

Mr. Tophi doesn't want another diagnosis.

Mr. Tophie, cut out the roast beef, and start smoking 3 cigarettes a day.(Just kidding)
