(This conversation often happens happens when talking to patients.)

Me: Do you have any Medical History? Ex: problems with your heart, lungs, brain.
Patient: No, No problems.
Me: Do you take any medications?
Patients: Lists of Medications.
Me: So what do you take (Common med for medical conditions) for.
Patient: (Common medical conditions).

(Every time I have this conversation with a patient I want to face palm. How can you have no medical conditions and yet have a list of medications for said conditions.)
