    We expect our doctors to give us medical advice. But sometimes, detailed instructions, big words we don’t know, science talk and “Look! I went to medical school!” language is the last thing you need when facing a diagnosis. If you’re lucky, your doctor understands this.

    We polled our Facebook followers for their favorite pieces of non-medical advice their doctors have given them. Turns out, a lot of doctors really do get it. Take a look:


    1. “Just enjoy him!”

    2. “Treat her like a child. Love her, let her play, enjoy and let her enjoy childhood.”

    23. “Jacob, some days you just have to look at all of us doctors and tell us to stick it where the sun doesn’t shine and walk out the door and go play hard. And we doctors just need to say, ‘Go get ’em kid. See you tomorrow.’”
