A doctor's wish list

by

  1. I wish they would stop smoking and getting too much sun. Smoking is idiotic from a health perspective and it wrinkles your skin. Getting some sun is OK but getting burned is really something I wish they would stop.
  2. I wish my patients would be more consistent in their skin examinations and come to me earlier when something is changing on their skin.
  3. I wish they would call me when they are frightened about something so that I can help them.
  4. I wish they would stop having fits when I (or any other doctor that works hard) runs late- most of us are not on the phone scheduling a golf game or speaking with our brokers but rather dealing with someone that is having a problem that we did not schedule.
