@Julie: Does that help you get the job or does it just piss them off?

I can't believe this is a product of the American school system. It's application of the use of the English language is awkward, gratuitous, and simply sounds unprofessional. (Any 'unprofessional physicians' out there that can help write this testimonial for the 'Miracle Grow Your Own Brain Supplement' discovered in the very same kitchen as Face of Jesus toast?)

can we blame this on Dragon Dictation? or is it just plain stoopid?

I would find this funnier if my medical records weren't replete with misspellings, non sequiters, and other nonsense that, taken as a whole, probably contributed quite a bit to the delay in diagnosis of a life threatening condition.

I think the potential is slim to none. And as to Dragon, I love Dr Grumpy's Dragonisms. But actual medical records... yikes. They ARE awful. Happy New Year Dr G!!
