At the Doctor’s
When we are ill, we go to our doctor (as a rule a physician) in the local polyclinic. But if we are very ill, feel poorly, unable to leave our home or too ill to attend the polyclinic, we call the doctor. When we have a headache, a stomach ache, a sore throat, a cold or a pain in some part of the body, the doctor examines us and diagnoses illness (or disease). He asks us to take our temperature (in Russia the patient takes the temperature under his arm, in UK and USA in the mouth between the molar teeth and the cheek), checks (measures) our blood pressure with the aid of a special device (this instrument is called sphygmomanometer) and checks our pulse pressing two fingertips (a forefinger and a middle finger) on the vein by the wrist. Then he usually asks us to strip to the waist (to slip off the top things) and begins to listen to our heart at the front and from behind, to examine our lungs with the aid of the stethoscope. To examine the abdominal organs (liver, gall-bladder, pancreas, bowels (intestines), kidneys, urinary bladder) the doctor asks us to lie down on the couch. He palpates the abdomen, all his parts (sections), especially that which hurts us.
Finally the doctor allows us to rise and while we are getting dressed he tells us what the matter is with us. “Nothing to worry”, says the doctor and we feel a sense of relief. “You have a slight temperature”, or “You have the flu”, or “You have caught a cold (chill), or “You have overworked yourself” (you have been run down).
But sometimes the doctor considers it necessary to advice us to have a complete check up. That means to take analyses (sing. analysis) of blood, urine, gastric juice and other tests. The laboratory findings help the doctor to make a correct (accurate) diagnosis and administer a proper treatment.
to feel poorly – чувствовать себя плохо
with the aid (of) - с помощью (чего-либо)
to check - проверить, обследовать
wrist - запястье
to strip (to the waist) - раздеться (до пояса)
to slip off the top things - раздеться (до пояса)
to get undressed to the waist - раздеться (до пояса)
to take off the top things - раздеться (до пояса)
to remove the top clothing - раздеться до пояса
couch - мед. кушетка
to worry - беспокоить(ся)
to catch a cold - простудиться
you have been run down - переутомились
he considers it necessary - он считает необходимым
a proper treatment - соответствующее (должное) лечение

Taking a history
Any first interview between a doctor and his patient starts with the statement of the available information: surname, first name, age, sex, marital status (семейное положение; женат / замужем / нет), occupation and present complaints (жалобы).
Note how the doctor starts the interview with the patients, for his problem:
What’s brought you along to day?
- What seems to be the problem?
Note how the doctor asks how long the problem has lasted:
How long have they been bothering you?
How long have you had them?
Note how the doctor asks questions about the patient’s occupation:
What are you by profession?
Note how the doctor asks where the problem is:
Which part of your head (of the body) is affected?
Show me where the pain is?
Note how the doctor asks about the type of pain?
Can you describe the pain?
Other ways of asking this are:
What’s the pain like?
What kind of pain is it?
Other questions the doctor may ask
What’s your name?
How old are you?
Are you married?
Where exactly is the pain?
Did anything special bring the pain in?
Is it worse at any particular time?
Does anything make it better or worse?
Have you any other problems?
Have you taken anything for it?
Did the aspirin help?
Exercise № 3
Study this short dialogue:
Doctor: Well, Mr. Below. What brought you along today?
Mr. Below: I’ve got a bad dose of flu (1).
Doctor: How long has it been bothering you?
Mr. Below: Two or three days (2)
Practise this dialogue, getting a fellow student to play the part of the patient. He (she) can select replies from lists (1) and (2) below. Use all the ways of starting an interview and asking how long the problem has lasted.
A bad dose of flu
Two or three days
A pain in my stomach
For almost a month
Use this additional information to answer any questions the doctor asks.
Greasy (жирная; приготовленная на топленом жире) food, like fried eggs, upsets (нарушает, расстраивает) you most. The pain lasts several hours. [gallbladder]
The pain wakes you at night. Usually early in the morning. Spicy (пряности) food brings on the pain Too much to drink also makes it worse. [duodenal ulcer]
The pain is really bad. You’ve been coughing up brownish spit. You’ve had a temperature [pneumonia]
You’ve had a cold. You’re not coughing up phlegm [tracheitis].
Exercise № 4
Practise the dialogue, getting a fellow student to play the part of the patient. He/she can select replies from the list (1) below
Doctor: What part of your back (chest, head, etc.) is affected
Patient: Just here.
Doctor: Can you describe the pain?
a dull (тупой) sort of ache, throbbing (пульсирующая)
a feeling of pressure
very sore, like a knife
a burning pain
Note how the doctor asks if anything relieves the pain:
Is there anything that makes it better?
Similarly (аналогично) he can ask:
Does anything make it worse?
Doctors often ask if anything else affects the problem. For example:
What effects (воздействие) does food have?
Does lying down help the pain?
Exercise № 5
Work with a partner. In each of these four cases ask your partner where the pain is. Then ask two other appropriate questions to help you reach a diagnosis. Use all the ways of questioning we studied above. For example:
Doctor: Where does it hurt?
Patient: Right across here (indicating the central chest area)
Doctor: Can you describe the pain?
Patient: It’s like a heavy weight pressing on my chest.
Doctor: Does anything make it better?
Patient: If I stop for a bit, it goes away.
In this example, the patient’s symptoms suggest angina.
Now try each of these four cases in the same way.
Patient: Here, just under my ribs.
Patient: It gets worse and worse. Then it goes away.
Patient: Food makes it worse.
Patient: It’s right here (indicating the stomach area)
Patient: It’s a gnawing (ноющая) kind of pain.
Patient: Yes, if I eat, it gets better.
Patient: Down here (indicating down part of the chest).
Patient: It’s a sharp (острая), stabbing (колющая) pain. It’s like
Patient: If I take a deep breath, or I cough, it’s really sore
4. Doctor: __________________________________
Patient: Just here (indicating upper part of the chest)
Patient: My chest feels raw inside (боль внутри).
Doctor: When I cough, it hurts most.
Exercise № 6
Study this extract from a case history and try to select below questions the doctor might ask a patient to obtain the information in italics
The patient was a 55-year-old man, head of a small motor transport firm (1), who complained of central chest pain (2) which occurred on exertion (3) and was sometimes accompanied by sweating (4). He smoked 40 cigarettes a day (5). The pain had first appeared three months previously (6) and was becoming increasingly frequent (7). He had noticed some weight gain recently (8) and also complained that his hair had become very dull (вялый, не упругий) and lifeless. He felt the cold much more than he used to. He denied (отрицает) any palpitations (9) or ankle oedema (10).
And now question (have been given not in the order for each piece of information in italics):
What’s your job?
What’s brought you along today?
Have you had any problem with swelling of the ankles?
Have you noticed any change in the frequency of the pain?
How has your weight been?
Does the pain come on at any particular time?
When did you first notice the pain?
Apart from the pain, do you feel anything else wrong?
Do you ever become aware (знали ли вы) of your heart beating too quickly?
Do you smoke? How much do you smoke?
Which part of your chest is affected?

A case history
A 53-year old bachelor (холостяк) who worked as a bank clerk developed symptoms similar to those which had affected several of his colleagues who had been diagnosed as having influenza. He felt feverish, had a running nose, aches in his muscles and generalized malaise. He therefore stayed off work in his bed-sitting room (не пошел на работу, оставшись в своей жилой комнате = и спальня, и кухня все в одном). After 48 hours the landlady (владельца дома) noticed that the milk on the doorstep had not been taken in for the previous two days, and also that his cat had not been fed. On entering his room she found him confused (дезориентированный во времени и пространстве) and delirious (делириозный = находящийся в бреду). She called a doctor, who immediately had him admitted to hospital.
A routine blood count had been performed which showed some deviation (откровение). At that stage he was referred to hospital, where it was found that he had some enlarged lymph nodes in both sides of the neck and both axilae (подмышечная ямка), and that the spleen tip (верхушка) was palpable. Chrome lymphatic leucaemia was diagnosed.

It’s my job
My name is Dr. Choudhary, and I am a GP (General Practitioner = врач общей практики) working in an inner city area in London, just on the edge of the East End. I started work as a GP in this area over 20 years ago. In recent years many development, both technological and social, have occurred, affecting the practice enormously. I enjoyed my work here a lot at the beginning and I still do now. But there are many problems an in area like this, which you would not find in rural communities (сельских поселениях) in this country or in my home country – India. The crime rates (криминальность) are high, which affects the morale of patients we serve and ultimately (в конечном счете) the morale of the GP practice. The workload is heavier than in most rural districts, which sometimes puts potential GB’s off moving into the area. However, I have always found the job very rewording. Another feature of an inner city GP practice is that patients move around a lot. As regards (что касается) compensation for working in deprived (бедных) areas in the inner city, sometimes GPs receive extra payment.
Doctor: Come in Mr. Hall. Good Morning! Take a seat right here.
What seems to be a problem, Mr. Hall?
Patient: Doctor, I have a bad headache and I have no appetite
Doctor: Show me your tongue
Patient: (He opens his month and shows his tongue / he puts out his
Doctor: Yes, you have a very nasty (плохой) tongue. Have you a
pain in the stomach?
Patient: Yes, doctor, sometimes, especially after meals. I have a
temperature after meals too
Doctor: I must examine your stomach… Does it hurt here?
Patient: No. not there.
Patient: Oh, yes, it does there.
Doctor: You have digestion trouble. But it is not serious. I shall
prescribe some tablets. You must take two before each
meal. Do not eat any roast meat or any heavy food. Eat
boiled vegetables and milk puddings. You need no to go to
bed (to keep your bed), but do not overtire your self. If you
follow my prescriptions, you will feel much better
tomorrow and in two or three days you will be quite well
