    his specialty?

    There's a gastroenterologist at my hospital named Dr. Ayasso (pronounced I-ass-o). And the first time I heard the radiologist paged I thought it was code name : Dr. Ilyas (pronounced ileus).
    Oh, and Dr. Ayasso's partner is Dr. Ennis (pronounced a little too close to 'anus' for comfort). BTW, they are great GI guys.

    Hello,

    I am a nurse with one of those funny last names, I am nurse Grim, and yes I have had patients comment on the name, the funniest one though was about a month and half after I started working, a patient called out as soon as I got out of report and the nurse who had him previous to me said that she had been stuggling with him all day, well I get in there and he said I have air in my IV tubing! I looked at it and told him I was going to get the air out. He started getting very anxious and said no lie "God $%^& I knew that other nurse didn't like me but, I never thought she would send the grim reaper nurse in here to kill me!!!" I still die with that one. He was as serious as a heart attack, I had to leave the room and get my supervisor to fix his IV line because I couldn't stop laughing. LOL

    I know a MD who is a general surgeon (and a good one at that) whose last name is Kill. Can you imagine him coming into your room and introducing himself " Hi, I'm Dr. Kill and I will be doing your surgery today." We gave him such a hard time about that, but he is an excellent surgeon and a great guy too.

    I recently had 2 patients with peculiar names...one was Dick Trickle, and the other one was P. Tinkle... I only used the last names when addressing them to avoid laughing my butt off!!
