    A young doctor had moved out to a small community to replace a doctor who was retiring. The older gent suggested the young one accompany him on his rounds so the community could become used to a new doctor.
    At the first house a woman complained, "I've been a little sick to my stomach."
    The older doctor said, "Well, you've probably been overdoing the fresh fruit. Why not cut back on the amount you've been eating and see if that does the trick?"
    As they left the younger man said, "You didn't even examine that woman. How'd you come to your diagnosis so quickly?"
    "I didn't have to. You noticed I dropped my stethoscope on the floor in there? When I bent over to pick it up, I noticed a half dozen banana peels in the trash. That was what was probably making her sick."
    "Huh," the younger doctor said, "Pretty sneaky. I think I'll try that at the next house."
    Arriving at the next house, they spent several more...

    A young doctor moved out to a small community to replace the aging doctor there. The older doctor suggested that the younger doctor accompany him as he made his house calls so that the people of the community could become accustomed to him.
    At the first house they visited, the younger doctor listened intently as the older doctor and an older lady discussed the weather, their grandchildren and the latest church bulletin.
    After some time, the older doctor asked his patient how she had been feeling.
    "I've been a little sick to my stomach," she replied.
    "Well," said the older physician, "you've probably been over doing it a bit with the fresh fruit. Why don't you cut back on the amount of fresh fruit you eat and see if that helps."
    As they left the house, the younger doctor asked how the older doctor had reached his diagnosis so quickly.
    "You didn't even examine that woman," the younger doctor stated.

    A chap had a very painful elbow. He went to see his own
    doctor, who told him to rest it: no treatment was required, it
    was just tennis elbow.
    Rather dissatisfied, he decided to go to a new computer-based
    medical service that had just opened up. He went inside the
    building and found the terminal, but there were no people in
    sight. The instructions told him to slide his credit card
    through the slot, and that $150 would be debited. When he had
    done this, he was asked screen after screen of questions about
    himself, until eventually a specimen bottle appeared. The
    instructions on the screen said, "Produce urine specimen and
    pour into slot on left," so he did. A few seconds later, the
    screen read:
    Diagnosis: Tennis elbow
    Treatment: Rest
    Well, he wasn't happy. $150 wasted just to be told the same
    thing again. He thinks, "I'm going to confuse the hell out of
    that smug machine." He went home, took a bottle more...

    An old man goes to his doctor, complaining about a pain in his left leg that doesn't heal and wants a diagnosis and explanation. The doctor checks out his leg, but can't find anything wrong. So he gives the old guy a full physical exam, and still can't come up with any possible explanation for the pain. The doctor hands the patient his bill and says, "I'm sorry, but the pain in your leg is simply caused by old age, there's nothing I can do about it." The old man replies with a look of disbelief, "That's impossible! It is illogical! That just can't be!" The doctor says, "What do you mean? I'm the expert here; if you know so much, how can you say it's NOT old age?" The patient answers, "I'm no doctor, but it doesn't take a medical degree to tell that your diagnosis is wrong. Clearly you're mistaken. After all, my right leg feels just fine." "So what?" says the doctor in a bit of a professional huff, "What difference does that more...

    Two young medical students were standing on a street corner observing people as they passed and discussing any abnormalities with each other that they may have seen in passers-by. They would then attempt to make the correct diagnosis.
    They spotted this old fellow leaving a bar sort of "duck waddling" down the street at a slow pace. The two students introduced themselves to the gentleman and told him that they didn't agree with each others diagnosis of the his problem.
    One says, "my friend thinks you have a bad case of hemorrhoids, and I think you have a hernia." Which of us is correct?
    The old man replies, "Well fellas, I thought it was a fart, but it looks like we were all wrong!"
