I don't like telling people that I'm a doctor. It's not because I'm humble or bashful. It's because I can't stand the questions! The first thing that people do when they find out I'm a doctor is to pester me with medical questions:
Can you feel something wrong in my knee?
Why did they use two different stitches?
I have this lump in my arm. What is it?
Stop, stop, stop, stop, STOP WITH THE MOTHERFUCKING QUESTIONS!! I don't want to answer your damn questions It's cancer, okay? Fever? Cancer. Sweating? Cancer. Leg pain? Cancer. The answer now is always cancer.
The worst was a stripper that had me do a joint exam. WTF.
Some of you may think, well, I went into medicine so people would seek my opinion. However, what you need to understand about free medical advice is that you get what you pay for. Without knowing anything about someone's medical history or doing a thorough H+P, I can't really give a decent opinion.
So stop asking me so many questions, unless you're in my clinic. Then ask away.
