Yep.... worked in a retirement community (like 20,000 people w/75% of them retired). Used my stethoscope in 'reverse' a few times. Nobody got all that excited about it, though- LOL. Just looked at me weirdly :D

What a wonderful doctor....!!!!!

Keep a few cheaper stethoscopes around for this purpose. You don't want your $500 cardiac special walking off.

I can finally find something to do with those cheap stethoscopes provided by the facility.

I know just the patient to try that with too.. although she might think I'm nuts and take the stethoscope and throw it at my head.
