On the clock...

Me:  "OK, everything looks good here, I'll see you tomorrow morning."

Patient:  "But it hasn't been 30 minutes."

Me:  "Ma'am, this is a hospital, not a clinic."

Patient:  "But I always spend at least 30 minutes with my doctor."

Me:  "Ma'am, if I spend 30 minutes in here talking with you, I will spend 15 minutes writing in the chart.  I do not have time to spend 45 minutes with every patient.  I'd be here 15+ hours a day.  We have covered everything we're doing on your case today."

Patient:  "Oh, well you don't have to spend 45 minutes on anyone else.  Just me."
