you went to school for 20 years and work 100 hours per week but still get paid less per hour than the guy who cuts your lawn.

You dont want to think about medicine but you cant help but click on that breaking news about medicine article.

Yun @

People want to discuss what's ailing them at a party

Jennifer @

You throw things at the TV when a show starts describing some ridiculous or erronous medical condition or treatment.

You get a call at 1 AM because 'Johnny' cut his lip bouncing on the bed with his dad. You're just glad Johnny has a dad in his life, so you don't ask the obvious question: "Why was he bouncing on the bed at 1 AM instead of asleep IN it?!"

Corky @

You owe more in loans than u ll ever make in primary care :/

Farooq @

Your children call and ask when you are coming home.

J. Clifton @

Amen

J. Clifton @

An air hostess calls for a doctor and you sheepishly look around for a response before coming forward

Nazeer @

You are listening to a conversation that critices doctors and you pretend not to have heard anything

Nazeer @

Of no consequence, people have the right to critique any profession but whether it's valid is a whole different story.

Cesar @

you lookaway when there is a call fora doctor in the house

When the Mother comes in & tells you - my child has "Infantigo" or what !?? [for Impetigo]

Sureshkant @

At least she didn't say, my child has MRSA. Since it's so straight forward to diagnose a MRSA skin infection visually.

Cesar @

a phone call comes at midnight from a patient asking for pain medication for her jaw(you are a gynecologist) because she had a tooth extracted that day.....didn`t want to wake her dentist at that hour.

Charles @

I would recommend that she go to the ER. Or take Tylenol and call her dentist in the morning.

Cesar @

You get a phone call at 2:00 AM and the person says they want to talk to you a minute, but they didn`t want to take up your time at your office that day.

Charles @

If it's an emergency you should go to the ER. If it's not, then call my office in the morning and we'll deal with it then.

Cesar @

outside of the office or hospital you don't want anybody to know you're a doctor

James @

I don't advertise it but I don't hide it either.

Cesar @

In the office I am Dr ------, outside the office I am CRAIG

Craig @

Amen!!

Jennifer @

You know what the following sentence means
"the pt had a pt that was OK so they could have pt today

Lisa @
