Kevin had shingles.

Those of us who spend much time in a doctor's office should appreciate this! Doesn't it seem more and more that physicians are running their practices like an assembly line?

Here's what happened to Kevin:

Kevin walked into a doctor's office, and the receptionist asked him what he had.  Kevin said: "Shingles."  So she wrote down his name, address, medical insurance number and told him to have a seat.

Fifteen minutes later, a nurse's aide came out and asked Kevin what he had.  Kevin said, "Shingles."  So she wrote down his height, weight, a complete medical history, and told Kevin to wait in the examining room.

A half hour later, a nurse came in and asked Kevin what he had.  Kevin said, "Shingles."  So the nurse gave Kevin a blood test, a blood pressure test, an electrocardiogram, and told Kevin to take off all his clothes and wait for the doctor.

An hour later, the doctor came in and found Kevin sitting patiently in the nude and asked Kevin what he had.

Kevin said, "Shingles."


The doctor asked, "Where?"

Kevin said, "Outside on the truck.  Where do you want me to unload 'em??"
