Dumbest patients doctors

7 doctors reveal their stories..

1.  ” I once had to use the word dick instead of penis because the patient did not know the proper term for his genitalia”

2. “He came to the ER because his iPhone app told him his sleep was poor quality”.

3. “There was this young kid who was crying and told me his cousin might just be pregnant. They had made eye contact for a full ten seconds. The kid thought that this impregnated his cousin”.

4. “I had a patient come in for an STD check. She was very upset and continued to tell me that she only had one partner. Progressing through my assessment, she further divulged that even if he was sleeping with other people it shouldn’t matter ‘because he uses a condom every time and he makes sure to wash it thoroughly after every use”.

5. “Lady has to have foot amputated and is given waiver forms to sign pre-op. Buddy asks if she needs time to think about it. She’s very nonchalant and doesn’t seem to care much what they do. He gets suspicious and probes a bit as to why she’s not more concerned. She says she gets that they have to operate and it’s OK because the foot will grow back”.

6. “He reported severe burns from boiling water “all over” his body. On exam he had no visible burns, and had reduced his complaint to a small area on his right index finger”.

7. “We had an ambulance calling over the radio for a “foreign body in left eye”. We started mobilizing, called the ophthalmologist on call, were ready for sharpnel, a big-ass tree branch, something big.We get a woman with an eyelash in her inner eyelid”.
