    • This is because doctors use a medical alphabet called Shorthand (or stenogaphy). There are many types of shorthand, but it's essentially a system for rapid writing that uses symbols or abbreviations for letters, words, or phrases.

    • I know there is shorthand for doctors to use to write things out quickly, but why the fuck are you in a rush? Take the extra 10 seconds to write legibly so I don’t end up taking the wrong medicine and having a 4 hour boner and heart palpitations.
