"Did your doctor weld the exam table you lay on??? "
Couldn't care less, as long as I'm not on it while he's welding.:lol:

Should be something in the Hippocratic Oath covering that.:laugh:

Seen the table and even had to slide over a bit before they knocked me out. Didn't even see the Dr before I went OUT ,had seen him about 15mins before going to the operating room. He could have welded while I was there , I would have never known. :dunno:

I helped construct some our manipulation tables in the first clinic, they are still there being used by the students and residents for patients today.

They were 6x6 oak legs with mortised stringers that we routed a decorative detail into. They stained them and gave a nice upholstered top. Bit heavy to move. :cheers:

I worked very hard to ensure that rectal exams are a very small, almost non-existent, part of my practice....

I stay away from docs who call their operation "practice." :hide:
Then you're gonna have a tough time finding one, and if you do, you should be worried, very worried. If they don't, that means they haven't learned or changed since they graduated. Another common worry is that a doctor without a grey beard isn't any good.......fair enough, but if your doc has a grey beard, and hasn't changed since med school, you're likely in for either a frontal lobotomy, a donkee-kickin, or a bluejay-peckin'.

What took me 2.5hrs in the OR 3 years ago, now takes us 45min.....

Like it or not, we all learn everyday that we work. Any "do-er", whether that's a welder, a driller, a graphic designer, or a surgeon, is in "practice"....

for reference to weird comments above, see "A Million Ways to Die in the West".....

Interns have done a couple of my nerve repair surgeries in the past 4 years. One of them was excellent! On the serious stuff, I had the head of Neurosurgery doing the op while the students watched. He's quite good and in his 50's, wears a hoodie under his lab coat in the OR, and likes shooting his bow. :thumbup1gif:

None of them have a practice though. lol They're at the V.A. Med Center.
