I am a walk in patient for an x-ray. She shows me the referral and tells me the information is wrong. I’m confused, because she just came from the doctor’s upstairs and they are the ones that made the referral.

We discover it’s a for a completely different patient that so happened to have the same first name.

Explanation, my patient went into her doctors without an appointment regarding foot pain, someone called [NAME] and she went in.

The doctor was fully under the impression they had the appointment patient and wrote the radiology referral up. The patient had taken someones appointment and I could see the look of realization in her eyes.
