    from my co-resident's note:

    "the patient also has persistent priapism that he cannot control"

    (I think she meant he has persistent spasms that he cannot control)

    On a patient whose insurance changed and she had to switch pain doctors (from a colleague of mine to my practice):

    Dictated: "All that I can add to Dr. X's previous care is a little embellishment".

    Transcribed: "All that I can add to Dr. X's previous care is a little intelligence"

    . . . and cc'd to the other pain doctor.

    "I feel that the patient would be a good candidate for lumbar annihilation".
