When I went into the post partum ward I was greeted with, “You are the doctor who did my c-section!” While I had done two the day before I was pretty sure this was a new delivery done in the night and I hadn’t been on call so I let her know that it probably wasn’t me. “But,” she said, “you have the same appearance as the doctor who did my operation.” We all had a good laugh, patients included when we discovered it was a male doctor with a beard who actually had done the procedure. Hmmm, I hope she only saw him with his mask on. Either that or I need a trim.
