I'm seriously questioning everything. I may only be a lowly mailroom clerk but I do have a basic understanding of spelling, grammar and how to craft a few lines of prose. I also know that if I issue a challenge, say the clinical significance of "ecchordosis physalifera" that I will make sure that I spell it correctly.
I would expect more attention to detail, and a greater command of the English language from a medical doctor; I would imagine patients would expect it as well.

Gamma globulin injections can help boost a patient's immune system temporarily, so they are sometimes administered after a patient has been exposed to a contagious illness, though this practice is less common than it once was. This type of gamma globulin injection was formerly common for measles and hepatitis A, but vaccines currently exist for both conditions. Gamma globulin injections may also be given to patients who do not produce enough antibodies on their own as the result of a genetic disorder or an acquired condition"
You should seriously think again TC,

Possibly the reason the bill was so high was because the person had no insurance. They may be expecting them to default and they can claim it as a tax loss or file a huge bill to the govt to be reimbursed. These guys are thinking profitprofitprofit every waking minute.edit on 17-12-2011 by DAVID64 because: repeating myself.
