Pt came into the ER on New Year’s Eve night for a doctor’s note to avoid going back to work the next day. He also brought with him a girlfriend who said she had a red lump on her chest for 2 years! Decided they had nothing better to do, so why not visit the ER? Ended up waiting about 4 hours to get a doctor’s note and a referral.

    Your ER MDs are nice. Ours would have not have given a note. Only if it is warranted. They have no problem saying no to abuse of the system
