Me: "Mr. Smith?"
Me: "Hi, I'm Dr. McFizz."
Patient: "Oh no, are you the one who's going to be electrocuting me?"
Me: "Ummmmmmm.... I guess."
Patient: "But I specifically said I didn't want a woman to do it."
Me: "Are you serious?"
Patient: "Last time, a woman did it and she really hurt me. I don't want a woman."
Me: "Well, all the residents today are female, so it looks like you're out of luck."
Patient: "What about Dr. Attending? Can't he do it?"
Patient: "Women always screw things up. They can never take my blood right. They're always hurting me."
Me: "I'll try not to hurt you, Mr. Smith." Even though I really really want to.
I have to admit, that was a first. Honestly, usually patients are happy to get a female doctor if they show a preference either way.
