• Note: Patient recovering from forehead cut. Patient became very angry when given an enema by mistake.

• Patient has chest pain if she lies on her left side for over a year.

• On the second day, the knee was better, and on the third day it disappeared.

• The patient has been depressed since she began seeing me in 1993.

• She is numb from her toes down.

• While in ER, she was examined, x-rated, and sent home.

• Patient was alert and unresponsive.

• I saw your patient today, who is still under our car for physical therapy.

• The lab test indicated abnormal lover function.

• Skin: Somewhat pale but present.

• Patient has two teenage children, but no other abnormalities. (Marshall Shelley,
