Doctor: Hi, Evan, what seems to be the problem?
Evan: I’m not feeling too good. I have a sore throat, and I’ve been coughing a lot.
Doctor: I see. How long have you had these symptoms?
Evan: Well, I started feeling out of sorts on Monday. Then Tuesday I had a bad fever, so I took the day off from work.
Doctor: You didn’t see a doctor then?
Evan: No. I was really tired and feverish. I couldn’t even get out of bed. The next day I felt a little better, so I tried to tough it out and went back to work.
Doctor: This was on Wednesday?
Evan: Yeah. But last night my throat felt like it was getting worse. It hurts to swallow.
Doctor: Lift your head. Let me feel your neck. Hm… Your glands are swollen. Open your mouth and say, “Ahh…”
Evan: Ahh…
Doctor: It looks like it could be strep throat, but we’ll need to take a throat culture to be sure. If so, we’ll put you on some antibiotics, which should clear it right up.
Evan: Thanks, doc.
