What the Doctor Says
I went to the dermatologist yesterday to have something taken care of. (I'll spare you the details.) When he first looked at the problem he said, "Oh wow!". Not exactly something you want to hear from your doctor. It reminds me of when I was in labor with my 3rd child, and they decided to check on the position of the head, so did an ultrasound. The nurse was having trouble making out the image, and suddenly said, "Do we have twins here?". That is not a fair thing to say to a woman in labor! Besides "Uh oh", and "Oops", what other phrases would you prefer your doctor not say while he is treating you?
