บทสนทนาเกี่ยวกับ Seeing a doctor (ไปหาหมอ)

(A = Mr. Albert เป็นคนไข้, B = หมอ)

A: Good morning, doctor.

B: Good morning, Mr. Albert.  You’re looking wonderful today.  How do you feel today?

A: I’m feeling a bit better.  But I always feel sleepy and tired.

B: What do you usually have for your breakfast? 

A: I have only a cup of coffee, and some toast if I have enough time.

B: I think you need some things more.  A cup of coffee and some toast will not do for you.  You must have some eggs and milk.  Breakfast is the most important meal in a day.  Let me take you temperature, please.

A: What is wrong with me, doctor?  But I feel very weak.

B: Of course, you do after ten days of your fight against pneumonia.  Now, stick out your tongue, please.  Your tongue is coated.  You also have a high temperature.  I’ll give you a prescription.  You need some more rest.  Roll up your sleeve, please.  I want to check your blood pressure.

A: How is it, doctor?

B: Don’t lose heart.  It is nothing serious.  You will be better soon.  But I think you must abstain from alcoholic drink.  And try to smoke less.

A: I will strictly do what you tell me, doctor.

B: Good.  What time do you usually go to bed?

A: About eleven o’clock.

B: That is too late.  You have not enough rest.  You should try to go to bed before ten.  I’ll give you a prescription.  You must take two of these tablets after meal for the whole week.

A: Thank you so much, doctor.
