Three or four times during each day in my Family Medicine office a patient arrives at a Duh! moment in their story. One of the benefits of the electronic era will be the ability to add emphasis to these moments with a flashing Duh! sign on the computer monitor or my tie or the wall of the exam room. It might even entail a Duh! Duck that drops from the ceiling like the duck on the old Groucho Marks show that dropped down when a contestant would say the secret word.
Have you experienced any health related Duh! moments worth commenting on below this post? I bet that many of you have the Duh! story of the week, month or year. What do you think?
