ETOH - Extremely Trashed or Hammered
FMPS - Fluff My Pillow Syndrome (attention/sympathy seeker), like Call Button Jockey
FOS - Full Of Shit
GOK God only knows
Gomergram - Ordering all available tests because the person is unable to explain what is wrong with them
JPS - Just Plain Stupid
PRATFO - Patient Reassured And Told to Fuck Off
LGFD - looks good from door (but not closely examined, possibly an obnoxious patient)
OBS - Obvious bullshit
