    Isn't it sad that litigation risks force so many doctors to practice
    defensively; the many testing-safeguards requiring an assembly-line approach for patient care? For example, here's what happened to Buford:

    Buford walked into a doctor's office and the receptionist asked him what
    he had. Buford 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 aid came out and asked Buford what he
    had. Buford said, "Shingles". So she wrote down his height, weight, a complete medical history and told Buford to wait in the examining room.

    A half hour later a nurse came in and asked Buford what he had. Buford
    said, "Shingles".

    So the nurse gave Buford a blood test, a blood pressure test, an
    electrocardiogram, and told Buford to take off all his clothes and wait for the doctor.

    An hour later the doctor came in and asked Buford what he had. Buford
    said, "Shingles".

    The doctor asked, "Where"?

    Buford said, "Outside on the truck. Where do you want them"??
