Patient: Seafood, roastduck. Oh, a great variety of things, I can’t name them exactly.
Doctor: Have you vomitted?
Patient: Yes, I have vomitted three times and made several trips to the bathroom last night.
Doctor: I see. Now you have to get your stools tested. I’ll write out a slip and you can take it to the laboratory. Wait for a while and pick up the report, and then bring it back to me.
Patient: All right, doctor. I’ll see you later.
Doctor: See you later.
Patient: Here’s my report, Doctor.
