My life as a Malaysian doctor in the United States.

I got one of the weirder calls tonight oncall.
It was the hospital PR director.
"Uh oh. Someone must have made a complaint about me". Seriously, that was my first thought.
And then the egomaniac kicked in: "Someone must have given me a big compliment".
Seriously, those were my first two thoughts. But no. Apparently a television newscaster wanted to interview an endocrinologist regarding a recent event. And so she contacted the hospital who called the oncall endo: Mua.
I did a 5 min phone interview (unpaid, and unrecorded, of course). I doubt much of that material will see light of day, but that was certainly one of the more interesting calls I've ever gotten while oncall.
