The case of the moody doc.

Must have seen Doc on a bad hair day. Did not remember setting up his own routine follow-up visit. Then did not know the visit was also a follow-up from an ER visit. Angrily stated "I don't give a sh*t about the labs" when presented with the ER lab results. Made no comment on them except to recommend that the pt. see another. Dr. Asked "what else is wrong", and made no comments there either. Gave an EKG and made no comment on results. Made no follow-up appt. Doc having a midlife crisis?
