Had a guy come in for a bruise on his tailbone. Had to take a picture of it with my phone and show it to him before he would believe it wasn't an abscess!

22. A rash that was there, and is now gone

24. I want you to take out my IUD

25. I want the morning after pill and I can't afford to buy it over the counter (but I have an iPhone and smoke two packs a day)

26. I ran out of tylenol for my baby and I want a prescription so the "state" can pay for it.

Drink cranberry juice for a UTI? Really? I have had frequent UTI's since I was a small child. I know to avoid scented toiletries and to urinate after sex. Despite all the precautions I take I still get UTI's several times a year. I usually go to my PCP for treatment. Twice in the last year I have been out of town and the town didn't have an urgent treatment clinic so I had to go to the E.R. since I was in so much discomfort and NO I never ask or take narcotics. I just want antibiotics. How is this a crime?
