FLU SHOT TO GO

HIPPACRATIC OATH

Patients who get angry at us for not sharing protected health information about other patients, even after we tell them about Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996.

CALL ME A DOCTOR

Physicians who insist that I’m not a “real doctor” after I tell them that I earned a PharmD.
