When a patient shows up 5 minutes before we close and asks us to fill almost a dozen prescriptions right away.
When patients shout a question at me as I’m advising another patient.
PHARMACY, NOT FAST FOOD
Drive-thru patients who condescendingly joke that they’d like fries with their prescription. It’s neither original nor funny!
IN MY EXPERT OPINION
When a patient gives improper medical advice to another patient waiting in line.
