TWO DIFFERENT DOCTORS’ OFFICES
Boy, if this doesn’t hit the nail on the head,
I don’t know what does!
Two patients limp into two different medical clinics with
The same complaint. Both have trouble walking and
Appear to require a hip replacement.
The FIRST patient is examined within the hour,
Is x-rayed the same day and has a time booked for
Surgery the following week.
The SECOND sees his family doctor after waiting 3 weeks
For an appointment, then waits 8 weeks to see a specialist,
Then gets an x-ray, which isn’t reviewed for another week
And finally has his surgery scheduled for a mont h from then.
Why the different treatment for the two patients?
The FIRST is a Golden Retriever.
The SECOND is a Senior Citizen.
Next time take me to a vet!
