Just the facts madam
On an old TV show dragnet, the detective sergeant Friday used to ask the witness to state "just the facts, Madam, no opinions". You gave the doctor a conclusion based on your limited medical knowledge. He could use some PR training but was following good medical practice in keeping an open mind. If I had a dollar for every time a user told me the problem and the wrong diagnostic assessment I would be rich. It would have been better to mention the symptoms (fever, swelling etc) and let doctor draw his own conclusions. I hope you will be well soon, we enjoy your stories. Keep them coming. Get lots of rest and chicken soup.
