your wait would be shorter if your doctor wrote legibly

"I hate when doctors use those old-school scripts; I can never figure out what they're saying! Like look at this one: What the heck is "dysuna"? It's not in the dictionary and google says it's not even an English word."

"What's that after it, "renal" something? Oh so it's something to do with the kidneys."

"Yeah, I figured that, but insurance isn't going to pay for it if we put down something nobody's ever heard of."

"Hey, come over here, Cadiz and I can't figure out what this says."

"Dysuna? Man, that's way worse than Die laytah! Bwahahahahaah!"

"Oh my God."

"I got it! It's gotta be "Dysuria, painful urination."

"Yes, that's definitely it. Dude, I'm going to need that anatomy and physiology class sooner rather than later."

doctors should not only keep up with the latest medical breakthroughs and treatments, they should also have to take handwriting classes on a weekly basis.

I bet if you practiced grading, say, 2nd grade cursive papers, you might be able to read the doctors' notes better!

And they wonder why things go wrong and they get sued.

Illegible diagnosis and prescriptions are inexcusable.

If I tried to give instructions in our shop like that I'd be fired.
