New Doctor

Rate this Entry
A man recently turned 65 and had to choose a new primary care physician for his Medicare program.
After two visits and exhaustive lab tests, the new doctor said the man was doing "fairly well" for his age.

Slightly concerned about that comment, the patient couldn't resist asking him "Do you think I will live to be 80?"

The doctor then asked a series of questions, "Do you smoke tobacco or drink alcoholic beverages?"
"Oh no," the man replied. "I don't do drugs, either."

The doctor asked, "Do you have many friends and entertain frequently?"
He responded, "No, I usually stay home and keep to myself."

"Do you eat rib-eye steaks or barbecued ribs?"
He sad, "No, my previous doctor said that all red meat is unhealthy!"

"Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, sailing, hiking, or bicycling?''
"No, I don't" the man replied.

"Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of sex?"
"No" he said. "I don't do any of those things."

The doctor looked at him and said,
"Then why do you give a shit?"
