top ten reasons primary care doctors need a good sense of humor (or at least a generally cheerful disposition)

reason #1:  you will get paged during how shall i put it an intimate moment.  you will then listen sympathetically as your patient describes their diarrhea to you in great detail.  your dear spouse will have to listen to you saying things back like, 'is there any blood or mucus in your stool?'

well after that reason do i need to give you more?


  1. I wonder, do patients ever think about what their doctor *Might* be doing at any given moment or is it always all about themselves ?~!

  2. Please, absolutely no more explanation! I promise to never call unless I'm bleeding or dead. Why didn't your answering service pre-screen?

  3. Can't wait for the other 9 reasons!!!!!
