Two quotes from the day:

Patient #1: "Well you don't look like the doctor. I was told I had an appointment with the doctor. And you're not her. The D-O-C-T-O-R (he spells it for me). Do you know who she is?"
Me: "Well it's your lucky day because you get to see me and the doctor today. She'll be in a little later."
The visit continues. . . .
As I'm leaving the room, Me: "Well the D-O-C-T-O-R will be right in to see you."
He smiled at me. He's ornery and he knows it. He gave me a hug before he left.

It's all in your perspective.

Patient #2, as I'm looking in her ears: "Can you see my sinuses in there?"
Me: "No, only your ears."

I don't know how many times over the last month I've been asked, 1) "How old are you?" & 2) "Are you the doctor?"

And sometimes, when I answer, "No, I'm the PA" They say, "What's a PA" Agh!!!!

I had one patient preface the "Are you the doctor?" with "Little girl..."

Needless to say, I've started wearing my white coat again.
