Joke of the Month, submitted by Dr. Ruiz:
Steve (someone i just met): So you’re a doctor?
Me: Yes, I’m a pathologist.
Steve: And what’s that?
Me: I examine cells with a microscope, mostly from tissue samples but also from needle aspirations or frozen sections. I give a diagnosis of a tumor or inflammation, so the attending doctor can provide proper treatment. I also interpret special studies that give prognostic information for cancer, and helps choose specific therapies for some illnesses. I also do autopsies.
