Expensive Vet Visit

It’s time for this guy’s birds annual check-up at the vet’s office. So, off he goes to the vet with the bird. As he sits in the waiting room, the vet comes out with a cat in tow. He puts the cat down on the floor and the cat runs over to the carrier the bird is in and sniffs it all over. Then the vet says could you step into my office? The man does and the vet does a cursory glance at the bird and says that he is in fine shape. At this he presents him with a bill for $930. The man says “Why is this so high? You didn’t even do anything!”The vet replied “Well, you see it’s $30 for an office visit, and the cat scan was $900.

Giving advice

A doctor and a lawyer were attending a cocktail party when the doctor was approached by a man who asked advice on how to handle his ulcer. The doctor mumbled some medical advice, then turned to the lawyer and asked, “How do you handle the situation when you are asked for advice during a social function?”
“Just send an account for such advice” replied the lawyer.

On the next morning the doctor arrived at his surgery and issued the ulcer-stricken man a $50 account. That afternoon he received a $100 account from the lawyer.

Don’t mess with a doctor

It had to happen sooner or later. Lawyer Dobbins was wheeled into the emergency room on a stretcher, rolling his head in agony. Doctor Green came over to see him.
“Dobbins,” he said, “What an honor. The last time I saw you was in court when you accused me of malpractice.”
“Doc. Doc. My side is on fire. The pain is right here. What could it be?”
“How would I know? You told the jury I wasn’t fit to be a doctor.”
“I was only kidding, Doc. When you represent a client you don’t know what you’re saying. Could I be passing a kidney stone?”
“Your diagnosis is as good as mine.”
“What are you talking about?”
“When you questioned me on the stand you indicated you knew everything there was to know about the practice of medicine.”
“Doc, I’m climbing the wall. Give me something.”
“Let’s say I give you something for a kidney stone and it turns out to be a gallstone. Who is going to pay for my court costs?”
“I’ll sign a paper that I won’t sue.”
“Can I read to you from the transcript of the trial? Lawyer Dobbins: ‘Why were you so sure that my client had tennis elbow?’ Dr. Green: ‘I’ve treatedhundreds of people with tennis elbow and I know it when I see it.’ Dobbins: ‘It never occurred to you my client could have an Excedrin headache?’ Green: ‘No,there were no signs of an Excedrin headache.’ Dobbins: ‘You and your ilk make me sick.’ ”
“Why are you reading that to me?”
“Because, Dobbins, since the trial I’ve lost confidence in making a diagnosis. A lady cane in the other day limping …”
“Please, Doc, I don’t want to hear it now. Give me some Demerol.”
“You said during the suit that I dispensed drugs like a drunken sailor. I’ve changed my ways, Dobbins. I don’t prescribe drugs anymore.”
“Then get me another doctor.”
“There are no other doctors on duty. The reason I’m here is that after themal practice suit the sheriff seized everything in my office. This is the only place that I can practice.”
“If you give me something to relieve the pain I will personally appeal your case to a higher court.”
“You know, Dobbins, I was sure that you were a prime candidate for a kidney stone.”
“You can’t tell a man is a candidate for a kidney stone just by looking at him.”
“That’s what you think, Dobbins. You had so much acid in you when you addressed the jury I knew some of it eventually had to crystallize into stones.Remember on the third day day when you called me the ‘Butcher of Operating Room6′? That afternoon I said to my wife, “That man is going to be in a lot of pain.’ ”
“Okay, Doc, you’ve had your ounce of flesh. Can I now have my ounce of Demerol?”
“I better check you out first.”
“Don’t check me out, just give the dope.”
“But in court the first question you asked me was if I had examined the patient completely. It would be negligent of me if I didn’t do it now. Do youmind getting up on the scale?”
“What for?”
“To find out your height. I have to be prepared in case I get sued and the lawyer asks me if I knew how tall you were.”
“I’m not going to sue you.”
“You say that now. But how can I be sure you won’t file a writ after you pass the kidney stone?”
