Things Doctors Do...
By Linda Girgis, M.D.
When we carve the turkey, we dissect it.
We take expired meds because we know that they are still OK.
We work when we are seriously ill.
We never go for check ups.
We have medical instruments/supplies in our trunks.
We eat while standing up.
When we go on vacation, we get CME credits.
We stare at strangers with big goiters and wonder if we should say something or just be quiet.
We listen to lectures a bout CHF, MS, HIV, etc. while commuting.
We memorized 100's of ICD-9 codes to make coding easier, only to have to memorize a whole new set next year.
