While I compose my blog on the impact of Obama Care on the quality of care, there is nothing better than some patient/doctor stories. 

On the subject of Colonoscopies...
Colonoscopies are no joke, but these comments during the exam were quite humorous..... A physician claimed that the following are actual comments made by his patients (predominately male) while he was performing their colonoscopies:

1. 'Take it easy, Doc. You're boldly going where no man has gone before!

2. 'Find Amelia Earhart yet?'

3. 'Can you hear me NOW?'

4. 'Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?'

5. 'You know, in Arkansas, we're now legally married.’

6. 'Any sign of the trapped miners, Chief?'

7. 'You put your left hand in, you take your left hand out...'

8. 'Hey! Now I know how a Muppet feels!'

9. 'If your hand doesn't fit, you must quit!

10. 'Hey Doc, let me know if you find my dignity.
11. 'You used to be an executive at Enron, didn't you?
12. 'God, now I know why I am not gay.'
13. 'Could you write a note for my wife  saying that my head is not up there?'

I intend later today to post something about my concerns of the impact on our health care system by the Affordable Health Care Act. I also expect that I will have the agenda for Tuesday's  Oz Council meeting in time to review it on Saturday and report Monday.


  1. What happened to the Presidential debate topic?

    Did you have to take it down for some reason?

  2. 5:57 pm; It beats the H*** out of me, I have no idea where, when or that posting vanished. I could have accidentally deleted it when I was deleting some drafts but do not believe so. Unfortunately I have also deleted the "word" draft so I can not re-post it.
