Too Many Cooks
If a broth can be spoiled
By too many cooks
That advice can, as well, be applied
To a patient consulting
With too many docs
To determine what problem's inside.
Each one hopes he can help
But conflicting reports
Put the questioner into a tizzy
And the tests and the labs
And the visits combine
To add one more new symptom - that's dizzy.
Frustration and pain, though,
In tandem, demand
A solution that might not be easy.
Still, stepping on somebody's
Toes may result
In discomfort that borders on queasy.
