Weird...weird..Doc....that gives me goosebumps...!


last sunday i took son H to see a doctor...as he was not feeling well....his main objective to visit the doctor is to get an MC because he did not go to work that day....(he is doing his industrial training )...after a week of nearly 10 long hours daily of work...he was quite exhausted. And as it was a Sunday....the clinic we normally visit was closed....so we decided just to drop by this 24hrs clinic nearest our place....this is the scenerio.....
mum: good afternoon doc......
doc: no response...with blank look..
mum: doc...this is my son...he's not feeling well...
doc: u..his mother...?.....write down yr name on this card...(pushing a card before me....why...my name....?)
the 60 something years old doc then put a tape on son's forehead and ask him to open mouth....just a peep....that's it...
doc: he's got fever and throat infection and flu....i will give him injection...
mum:...(panick)...oh..doc...what injection...for what....???
doc:( gave me another blank look without answering....)
nurse standing behind him in a loud voice : she wants to know what injection....u r giving his son....!
doc: u a nurse......?.....u know the names of medicines...?
mum: i want to know becoz son never had injection for flu before....he might get an allergy or something....
doc: injection...get well in 3 hrs....take tablets..5 days...only get well.....one injection cost 70 rm...(gave me another zombie look on his face)
mum: talking to herself....(he is so weird....don't know what will happen to son after injection....better not trust him..)....no..doc..no injection..give him tablets...and MC....
doc:.......(gave me another stare without speaking...no response..)
nurse: please wait outside......
when i went to take his medication...i saw so many packets....(8 packets of tablets plus 1 bottle of cough mixture.)panadols...for pain and fever.....i can understand...but a packet of ponstan.. another pain killer for what..??...my goodness..tablets for nose allergy...tablets for throat allergy...tablets for sore throat.. antibiotics...and tablets for nose/flu......so many to take for just a slight cough...and no fever at that time....and not only that ....i was billed 100 bucks for all that...
well...have anyone of you come across such weird doctors...??
