I tend to think of neurosurgeons as incredibly hard-working individuals--definitely up there as the most dedicated and intelligent and diligent physicians out there. But there's one neurosurgery practice we deal with that repeatedly baffles me.
Our unit coordinator: "We'd like to schedule a follow up visit for Mr. Johnson."
Neurosurgery practice receptionist: "Hmm. Well, he had a motorcycle accident. We don't see people who were in motorcycle accidents."
Us: "But you saw him at the hospital."
Them: "Well... that's true. But why does he need to be seen by us again?"
Us: "Um, because you removed half his skull?"
Honestly, call me old fashioned, but I really believe that once you take off someone's skull, you owe them at least one follow-up appointment. Just sayin'.
