A psychologist was walking along a Hawaiian beach when he kicked a bottle poking up through the sand. Opening it, he was astonished to see a cloud of smoke and a genie smiling at him.
"For your kindness," the genie said, "I will grant you one wish!" The psychologist paused, laughed, and replied, "I have always wanted a road from Hawaii to California."
The genie grimaced, thought for a few minutes and said, "Listen, I'm sorry, but I can't do that! Think of all the pilings needed to hold up the highway and how long they'd have to be to reach the bottom of the ocean. Think of all the pavement. That's too much to ask."
"OK," the psychologist said, not wanting to be unreasonable. "I"m a psychologist. Make me understand my patients. What makes them laugh and cry, why are they temperamental, why are they so difficult to get along with, what do they really want? Basically, teach me to understand what makes them tick!"
The genie paused, and then sighed, "Did you want two lanes or four?"
Mistake: A patient of duodenal ulcer on H2 blocker therapy came with recurrence.
Reaction: Oh My God! Why Did You Withdraw His Treatment
Make Sure: That all patients receive full treatment. Most duodenal ulcers recur, if treatment is withdrawn.
Dr Good Dr Bad
Situation: A 30-year-old female with pain in her right toe, was being treated clinically as a case of acute gout.
Dr Bad: Get serum uric acid done and continue with antigout therapy
Dr Good: I disagree with the diagnosis of gout, will not send blood for uric acid and look for some other cause of pain in the toe
Lesson: Gout does not occur in children and in women before menopause. Checking uric acid levels in such patients is poor clinical judgment.
Try this: Avoiding Tummy Tickles
Examination of the abdomen can be difficult in a ticklish patient. Try this. Place your hand on top of the patient's hand, with your fingers between the patient's fingers. You can then easily reach into the depths of the patient's abdomen without resistance.
