Agent had been talking with this nice guy for a while. From what he understands patient would like to schedule an appointment with a doctor, but what kind of doctor?
A: What kind of doctor would that be?
C: Well, you know...
A: I'm sorry but if I'm to schedule this appointment I need to know what doctor do you need.
C: Well... you know... down there, my junk. For my coq... An Ornithologist!!!
Another one (one of my favorites :P):
A: Your cognomen, please. (A. means for client to give his full family name)
C: Oh, I don't have it with me... Can I give you my card number instead?!
And the last one for this group
A: what kind of medical test do you need?
C: Television one!
A: Sorry... but what did you say?
C: Television ultrasound! (Doctor wrote a referral for a trans-vaginal ultrasound - tv ultrasound!)
All those kinds of clients while rather amusing are the better of the bunch. Lets now move on to the ones that can make your blood boil. The first and propably one of the worst is I PAY - I EXPECT. It doesn't matter if they want something they are actually paying for or not. You are there to serve and serve only. Whatever you are trying to say holds no meaning in they world. After all they are the ones to put food on you table. And grace your humble existence with their presence :D
A: How can I help you?
C: I'm going to have an appointment with your doctor at X street and I'm calling to see if its possible to move a bus stop a little closer to you, cause its very inconvenient for me to walk that far...
A: (In loss of words)
4D ultrasound is a technique that allows to see baby in 3 dimensions and its movement - for further reference this type of test is used ONLY for pregnancies :)
A: what kind of test do you need?
C: An ultrasound of kidneys
A: No problem. Let me_
C: But I want it in a 4D machine!
A: I'm sorry but this kind of test is performed only to see the fetus
C: But I pay you to have an ultrasound and I would like to see my kidneys in 3D
A: But I'm afraid...
(discussion like that continues for good 10 minutes. Finally...)
A: I know what? You're right, client is always right after all! But this test is performed trans-vaginally.
Let me just say that this stopped client's demands immediately :)
