    I used to work with a surgeon who whose name is Dr Hack, I currently work with a Dr whose name is Asif ( as if) the other problem is asif in the arabic language is another word for saying sorry, and I happen to be working in Saudi Arabia, when the pts ask who the dr is, I tell them and they all look very puzzled for minute, trying to work out whether that is the docs name or whether I am saying sorry for not being able to understand them!
