    From experience, Doctors often can’t read their own writing. Chemists, radiographers and Medical Scientists are the real cryptographers.

    “E.F.P.T.O.Z…”? I’m sure that chart reads- Take two before meals…

    Good thing I’m not a doctor. I read the chart as “Take three days running and then skip a day.” It was making me tired just looking at it. I must need glasses.

    I rarely get a paper prescription any more. They send them to the pharmacy via computer.

    I agree. I can’t remember the last time my doctor handed me a prescription.

    Bob, before I did this cartoon I asked on Facebook if a gag about doctor handwriting was still relevant in the age of computers. The comments were all in the affirmative but I continued to wonder.

    If you are ever without insurance, it would behoove you to ask for a paper prescription, so you can shop around for the best price.
