    If SP says something you don't understand

    Advertisements



    Hi you guys, I need your experiences!!!
    I will take CS next month in LA, and it just occured to me that SP might probably say a drug name and you just don't get what it is even after you ask him to repeat it. Is there any appropriate way to ask the SP? I mean, if it's ok just ask the SP, " I'm sorry, sir. Would you please spell it for me?" or if there's any other way to do so?
    Thanks a lot!

    Thank you earmuff, I think you have a point.
    Sounds like if the SP repeated that drug name and I still don't get it, I should not ask any further, right?

    Thank you guys, I passed CS yesterday!!
    I came across that condition I just mentioned above. I was honest and politely asked the SP to repeat drug names. I thought it works out this way. There was some drug name that I haven't ever heard before even the SP was so kind to repeat it slowly for me. I still might have put it wrongly in the patient note, though.
    This is the second time I took step 2 CS. Last time I did it miserably. I did not even practice the cases with people and was in a hurry during the encounter because I was so worried that I could not make it in 15 minutes. The SP must have thought that I was rude and scored me low.
    Really thank you guys and CSEvideo. I just did pretty much the same way as the doctor did in the video. I practiced a lot with my mom, my sister, my dad and even my girl friend. This time I did not worry about the time and I tried to slow down a little bit to build up the rapport and make the SP "feel better". Thanks to Buddha I passed. I will never forget the time when I stared at the score report yesterday. I could hear my heart pumping so loudly and perhaps some tear in my eyes. I told myself, I won this time!
    I just want you guys to know that if I could, you could.
    Good luck!
