"You're the easiest patient all day"

I don't know why I ever go to the doctor. They never spend enough time with me and never tell me something I don't already know.

I went to an orthopedist today to get my hip checked out. Turns out I have gluteus medius syndrome and can ease back into running and continue taking ibuprofen. Great. So keep doing what I'm doing, but slowly add mileage.

"You're a physio, you know what to do."

Well, sure, but I wanted some 'roids. And maybe a PT script since I can't analyze my own running. I didn't get a chance to ask for either of these.

"You're the easiest patient all day."

Well, yes, that's because you did a 30 second physical exam and a 2 minute history.

Thanks, glad I paid my $45 copay.
