A Silly Consult

Okay, I know I shouldn't be making an issue of this especially when economy is bad, and I should be thankful that people are still referring their patients to me...
... but this one really takes the cake.
I got a consult to see a patient. For tachycardia. And the winner? (drum roll please...)
From a cardiologist!!!
Sure sure, some endocrine disorders can cause a sinus tach, but still... sending me a patient with tachycardia without any testing seems kinda silly. I'm tempted to say in my recommendations:

Have patient see cardiology
