# at a hospital
--Hello. How may I help you?
--I would like to make an appointment with Dr. Smith, please.
--What would you like to see him for?
--I need my annual physical and also have a shoulder problem. It is aching.
--Dr. Smith has openings next week. Are you free on Monday or Tuesday?
--I'm free on Tuesday afternoon.
--We will schedule you for next week. Tuesday at 3pm.
# seeing the doctor
--Hi, Doctor. I came today because I need a flu shot and to get a checkup.
--Okay. Have you had a flu shot in the past year?
--No, not in the last few years. My knee hurts as well. I have been running a lot more and think it is injured.
--When did the pain start and does it still hurt now?
--About 2 weeks ago, and yes, it still hurts.  
--I suggest you ice it and I will prescribe you some pain medication.
--Thank you, Doctor.
