Peter called his doctor’s office for an appointment.
“I’m sorry,” said the receptionist,
“we can’t fit you in for at least two weeks.”
“But I could be dead by then!”
“No problem. If your wife lets us know, we’ll cancel the appointment.”
Patient: “Nurse, I keep seeing spots in front of my eyes.”
Nurse: “Have you seen a doctor?”
Patient: “No, just spots.”
Question: Does an apple a day keep the doctor away?
Answer: Only if you aim it well enough.
Patient: “Doctor, I’ve swallowed a spoon.”
Doctor: “Sit down and don’t stir.”
Q: What’s the difference between a general practitioner and a specialist?
A: One treats what you have, the other thinks you have what he treats.
During residency, I got paged at 3AM to the SICU.
I called them, a bit curious as to what was going on, as 3AM calls to the neurologist rarely come from the SICU.
When I introduced myself as the on-call neurologist, the very southern-sounding nurse loudly exclaimed:
“Neurology? I wanted Urology. I got the wrong end!”
Patient: “Doctor, doctor, will I be able to play the violin after the operation?”
Doctor: “Yes, of course…”
Patient: “Great! I never could before!”
A doctor is the only man who can tell a woman to take off all her clothes and then send a bill to her husband!
Q: What’s the difference between a marriage and a mental hospital?
A: At a mental hospital you have to show improvement to get out.
When I told the doctor about my loss of memory, he made me pay in advance.
A woman says to the dentist:
“I don’t know which is worse having a tooth pulled or having a Baby.”
The dentist says:
“Well make up your mind I gotta adjust the chair!”
Doc says, “Joe, I got some bad news for you. You’ve got six months to live.”
Joe says, “Six months? Doc, I can’t pay your bill in six months, I can’t do it!”
Doc says, “OK, I give you a year…”
Patient: “Doctor, I get heartburn every time I eat birthday cake.”
Doctor: “Next time, take off the candles.”
My doctor’s office has a foolproof way to collect. You pay your bill before you leave or you don’t get your clothes back.
Brian’s stress level was at unsurpassed levels.
His wife Maggie was in labor and Brian was sure it was time to head to the hospital.
Breathing heavily, Brian grabbed the phone and called the doctor.
“MY WIFE, SHE’S READY, SHOULD WE COME?”
The doctor tried to relax the poor fellow,
“just try to relax, now tell me how much time elapses between the contractions?”
“SHIRLEY!” Brian screamed on the top of his lungs,
“HOW MUCH TIME IN BETWEEN THE CONTRACTIONS? TEN MINUTES? OK, TEN MINUTES IN BETWEEN!”
“And is this her first child?” Questioned the doctor.
“NO YOU STUPID NITWIT, THIS IS HER HUSBAND!”
