You never know how crazy a patient is until………

Posted on Updated on

I sat to talk with a young 20 something year old female about her medical complaint. Suddenly she started asking me where my lab coat was. What sort of doctor did not wear a lab coat…….ummm, what?

I could not even waste time answering her. I had just finished dealing with a patient who had continuous seizures that same day.

I was tired. It had been one trauma after the other. I thought that since it was the end of the shift, one simple patient would be really nice………or so I thought.

After she berated me for not wearing a labcoat, like most other regular doctors, she walked off screaming that she wanted to be seen IMMEDIATELY!!

I just shook my head and went and got a cup of coffee. Time for a little break.
