Two patients
« on: December 19, 2018, 11:47 »
So true. Boy, if this doesn't hit the nail on the
head, I don't know what does

Two patients limp into two different medical clinics with the same
complaint? Both have trouble walking and appear to require a hip replacement.

The FIRST patient is examined within the hour, is x-rayed the same day
and has a time booked for surgery the following week.

The SECOND sees his family doctor after waiting 3 weeks for an
appointment, then waits 8 weeks to see a specialist, then gets an x-ray,
which isn't reviewed for another week and finally has his surgery
scheduled for 6 months from then.

Why the different treatment for the two patients?

The FIRST is a Golden Retriever.
The SECOND is a Senior Citizen.

Next time take me to a vet!

Dogs need their legs to scratch their ears.  The retriever's need was clearly the greater  ;) .
There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

Six months waiting time  ::)  When I had mine done it was 10 to 12 month waiting so I paid and got it done in two weeks.  ;)
Fourth in the 2018 Quiz of the Year but at least I beat Clive.
