Dr. Orthochick: Critical

Me: ...and he had 5 degrees of dorsiflexion. So the xrays showed--

Dr. Critical: Do you mean "radiographic analysis depicted?"

Me: Yeah

Dr. Critical: You mean, "yes."



Thanks to everyone who helped promote The Devil Wears Scrubs yesterday! It's still on sale for only 99 cents for a limited time. Also, if you were supposed to get a free copy but haven't received it yet, please send me an email because they should have been all sent out!


  1. So . . . Dr. Orthochick is alive, if not alive and well? Hang in there, Dr. Orthochick - things will get better :)

  2. Dr. Critical must be a very fast runner, or else he would have been beaten senseless in 4th grade.

  3. Is Sexy Surgeon still in the picture?! Awesome book btw.

  4. This made me laugh. An MD I used to work for was this SAME EXACT WAY. I eventually learned to laugh it off.

  5. Well, that's better than in rounds the other day:

    Surgeon: What is a cherry eye?
    Me: The gland of the third eyelid is prolapsed.
    [Few moments of correcting me to call it the "nictitating gland"]
    Surgeon (in a students-are-so-frustrating-tone): It's *PROLAPSED*

    That's like the third or fourth time it's happened to me, too.
