Me: "What are you here for today, Sir?"
Patient: " I am here to have my gallbladder removed."
Me: "Are you having any symptoms?"
Patient: "No, but I have in the past, and they told me I need to get scheduled to get it out."
Me: "Well you should definitely do that, then. But this is an emergency department. We can only consult a surgeon if you are having an emergency with your gall bladder. It sounds like you need to follow up with a surgeon."
Patient: "Look, I don't wanna do that. It costs money. Now get me a damn surgeon. I want the surgery NOW, and I want it for FREE."
He got kicked out shortly after. This is the country we live in. Imagine if I went into a mechanic shop with my car and demanded them to fix it for free and right away. Gese.
