Resident Unable to Offer Motivational Counseling, Too Busy Deciding Which Donut Shop to Go to

GALTER PAVILION – Internal Medicine PGY2 Jason Lerman was fifteen minutes late to clinic yesterday afternoon after waiting in a long line at Stan’s Donuts. The future primary care physician was also late to noon conference, as he was caught contemplating which donut shop he should go to afterwards.

“The Subway sandwiches they provide at noon conference are never enough,” Dr. Lerman told Flipside reporters. “I was totally in for a donut before clinic, but that’s not an easy decision these days. DD’s a classic, Do-Rite’s got chicken, and Stan’s has Nutella. Glazed and Infused if I want some exercise. I probably spent a good twenty minutes trying to decide instead of writing notes after rounds.”

While Dr. Lerman was enjoying his donut and coffee, he missed out on a conversation with his fellow medical residents regarding how most of their patients that day were overweight.

“We had at least 5 jokes going about our patient’s BMI’s,” one resident wrote via email. “Jason really missed out on a good bonding experience, he usually loves that stuff.”

According to multiple sources, the chief complaint of Dr. Lerman’s first patient was his weight, and wanted to discuss options as to how to burn more calories.

“That’s what the nurse told me, but I just didn’t have time to go through all the motivational counseling with him,” Dr. Lerman added. “The donut really set me back, so I upped his statin and moved on to the next patient.”

Many of the Northwestern faculty have been concerned about the high concentration of empty calorie options in and around NMH and how this not only sends an obvious contradictory message, but how Northwestern seems fine profiting from it.

Dr. Lerman admitted, “Sure, it’s a bit hypocritical for us to advertise a healthy diet, but offer an unhealthy one, but it’s more for the staff I think. I have such a long day, it’s a good escape for me. I think it’s fine every so often, but I wouldn’t advise patients to eat at the new donut places.”

Northwestern Medicine officials were unavailable for comment.
