Nephrology ARNP, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard “well, am I still going to see the doctor?” Or (my fave) “I came to see the Dr. If you wanted to be one, maybe you should have gone to school longer (wait for it..) no offense.” My response: “you are more than welcome to wait back in the waiting room until the doctor is finished seeing her pt, we work as a team and discuss all cases before you come in and at the end of the day, but it IS your choice. And… If you have to say ‘no offense’, it IS likely offensive.
