What's Up, Doc?

Now That Figures

A worried patient pressed the doctor about his diagnosis. "Are you sure it's pneumonia?" he asked. "I've heard of cases where a doctor treated a patient for pneumonia, and the patient died from something else."

"Don't worry," the doctor assured him. "When I treat a patient for pneumonia, he dies of pneumonia."

Serious Business
A young surgeon got a call from a colleague inviting him over for a poker foursome.

"Emergency, dear?" asked his wife sympathetically.

"I'm afraid so," the doctor replied bravely. "It's a serious case.  Three other doctors are already there."

Ins and Outs
A fellow went to the doctor for a physical examination. The doctor found him fit as a fiddle, with no sign of any ailments, but when the man left the office, he dropped dead right outside the door.

The nurse hurried in and told the doctor, "That man you just examined fell dead on his way out!  What shall we do?"

The doctor replied, "Go turn him around so it looks like he was coming in." - Helene N., LaGrange, Indiana

Just a Figure of Speech
The doctor was making a house call.  His patient said, "It's mighty nice of you to come all the way out here to see me."

"Oh, don't mention it," replied the doctor. "I had another patient in this part of town, so I decided to kill two birds with one stone."
