A question sent to Doctor D:
"Why do doctors ask for information that has nothing to do with what I'll be seen about?"
When you come to Doctor D with a swollen ankle without any injury it is probably gout. But questions about your breathing or your genitals force Doctor D to at least consider that non-traumatic ankle swelling can be caused by a blood clot or a gonorrhea infection.
So now you'll know why we ask all those crazy questions.
