Best Comments From My Health Care Providers

I had some memorable statements thrown at me by doctors, nurses and PTs last year, and here are some of the best:

  • Said while pointing to a bony knob on the side of my foot: "What is THAT?"
  • Said while pointing to a mysterious, recurring swelling on my foot: "Maybe it's what old women get in their feet, you know, varicose veins"
  • After testing for a potential cause of the mystery injury and getting a result -- on the wrong foot: "Let's just ignore that until it becomes a problem."
  • In exasperation at my insistence that a swollen ankle wasn't a normal effect of ultimate: "Maybe you're just getting older."

So, you're going to new doctor's now right?

My favorite is "There's no indication you have thyroid issues from your bloodwork. But, we can cut out that goiter if you like."


Every healthcare provider should switch to an EMR solution. Paper based records and prescriptions are a thing of the past now and it would be best for both doctors and patients to take advantage of their features and accessibility.
