Medical Humor: Overheard at the Doctor’s Office

I hope this finds you well.

Yes, it’s official – I now have a website. With the exception of a few upcoming minor changes, it is ready for viewing. Check it out at http://kammerchiro.com/ and please share it on social media and with your friends and family. In the future, the Spinal Column blog will have additional chiropractic health information and the occasional op-ed piece.

Now, a little medical humor for levity. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did…

Overheard in the Doctor’s Office
I gave my patient the results of her sleep study: “It looks like you stopped breathing in your sleep over 65 times per hour.”
Her response: “Did I start back?” —Michael Breus, PhD, Scottsdale, Arizona

During surgery, my fellow resident bumped heads with the surgeon.
“Ah, Dr. Jones, a meeting of the minds,” he said, laughing it off.
The surgeon mumbled, “Yes. And I felt so alone.” —Sid Schwab, MD, Everett, Washington

Scene: The operating room. I’m reviewing the surgical checklist with the nurses.
Me: We have the surgical equipment, the heart-lung machine, antibiotics, and the replacement heart valve on hand.
Patient: You wait until now to figure this stuff out? Marc Gillinov, MD, The Cleveland Clinic

I prescribed an inhaler for a patient’s cat allergy. He came back a week later saying he was none the better. Turns out, he was spraying the inhaler on the cat. —Source: sunnyskyz.com

I’m here when you need me.

Smile and be well,
Dr. Dan
