Sunday afternoon

Dr. Grumpy: "This is Dr. Grumpy."

Dr. Hospital: "Yeah, I need you to re-consult on Joe deMentia, who you saw last week."

Dr. Grumpy: "The guy with Alzheimer's disease? What's up?"

Dr. Hospital: "He has memory problems."

Dr. Grumpy: "Correct. I diagnosed him with Alzheimer's disease."

Dr. Hospital: "Well, he still has it. Can you come back and do something about it?"

Wow.

They either have a *lot* of faith in your abilities, or else I need to know the name of the hospital in question so I can be sure never to go there.

(Not that I don't have faith in your abilities, but I haven't heard that you've reached the ranks of miracle worker yet. Though I'd be happy to be proved wrong on that.)

"I'm sorry, I cannot do that right now. I'm entirely too busy counting up all the money I've made for discovering the cure for Alzheimer's."

And this is why Cracker Jacks stopped putting medical degrees in their boxes as prizes.

Obviously someone missed a few classes in medical school...Or maybe he has early onset Alzheimer's and forgot.

Dr. Hospital, another victim of Daylight savings time lag. When will we stop this madness.

Not a full moon. Three weeks too soon for April Fool's, what's up with that? March Madness?

This IRRITATES my own neurologist, but yes we are actually (supposedly anyway) living in, is it 2013? Except for neurologists,and some other medical specialists, that is.

Neuro RAP

Starts with N, ends with the sound of gee. Evoking the first century, B.C.

Practiced primitively, neurology.
As primitive as can be.

Scintillating intellectually, we'll take your money, yet do nothing for thee....

Neurology, practiced primitively.

OK, it needs more, a lot more, but there you are.

From someone with an untreatable, incurable, neurological disease, we are NOT in the 21 st century, medically speaking.

Ummm, that scares me a little.

Sounds to me like Dr. Hospital is related to Mr. deMentia. But Packer's suggestion is a good one, too.

Ask Mr. DeMentia, I gave him explicit instructions.

Poor Dr. Hospital must have Alzheimers too!

MSGMD said...

Sure, and while you are at it, have pulmonary see him: I hear he is still breathing, maybe they can do something about that...

Isn't the answer obvious? Change your diagnosis and the symptoms will go away!
