'Hello, I am a first-year medical student' [amusement & learning ensues]

With our son just starting medical school, we are sure to be in for plenty of this kind of humor.

Of course, there is a real lesson here — listen to your patient, hear what they have to say and then use your knowledge, wisdom and skill (and seek help when you need more of all three!) to find the best treatment plan.

Health care is a team sport — it starts with the patient and the physician.
