The Medical Receptionist


The Medical Receptionist

This is so true! They always ask at the doctor's office why you are there, and you say in front of others what's wrong, and sometimes it's very embarrassing.

There's nothing worse than a doctor's receptionist who insists you tell her what is wrong with you in a room full of other patients. I know most of us have experienced this, and I love the way this old guy handled it:

An 86-year-old man walked into a crowded doctor's waiting room. As he approached the desk, the receptionist said,

"Yes sir, what are you seeing the doctor for today?"

"There's something wrong with my dick," he replied.

The receptionist became irritated and said,
"You shouldn't come into a crowded doctor's office and say things like that."

"Why not? You asked me what was wrong and I told you," he said.

The receptionist replied,

"You've obviously caused some embarrassment in this room full of people. You should have said there is something wrong with your ear or something like that, and then discussed the problem further with the doctor in private."

The man replied,

“You shouldn't ask people things in a room full of strangers, if the answer could embarrass anyone."

The man walked out, waited several minutes and then re-entered.

The receptionist smiled smugly and asked,

"What are you here for today?"

"There's something wrong with my ear," he stated.

The receptionist nodded approvingly and smiled, knowing he had taken her advice.

"And what is wrong with your ear, Sir?"

"I can't piss out of it," the man replied.

The waiting room erupted in laughter.

That is the funniest ones I have ever heard...Let me tell you ..I am a Manager for a Medical Practice and that is a breech of Patient Confidentiality.....and also with the new HIPAA Laws and Privacy Laws that is a NO NO....

I do like the way the gentleman handled it...
