I work for an internal medicine specialist. I received this phone call in December one year.
Patient: Can you let the doctor know that I’ve been coughing up blood lately.
Me: Have you gone to the hospital? (because coughing up blood is a BAD thing)
Patient: No, I just thought I’d keep an eye on it until my appointment with the doctor.
His appointment wasn’t until FEBRUARY!!!
