Are you worried about your chest pain? No doctor, I’m concerned but not worried. If I was worried I’d be focussed on the problem, ie the chest pain, but I want to be focused on the solution hence my concern.
My apologies to the patient who recently saw me with some discomfort in his nether regions. I decided that the best way forward would be to arrange for an Ultra Sound Scan.
