    Do Not Be Whipping It Out

    If you're a new patient, and you've scheduled an appointment for some completely innocuous reason like a sore throat or a pregnancy check or a bladder infection, and you get me in the room and then PULL IT OUT...

    "It" being a two-page pre-employment health clearance form requiring a full history and physical including vision check and multiple blood pressure readings in both arms...

    ... you will get the bum's rush.

    That is all.
