Good morning, I’m Dr. Bead, are you Devon?
Do you go by Devon?
Devon is fine, thank you for asking though.
Of course. Now I see here on your paperwork you use they/them pronouns so I’ll make sure I use those in my notes. Would you also like me to put in a note so our other providers know too? Just in case you don’t meet with me at some point.
Yes, that’s great! Thank you so much. I am non-binary too, I don’t know if you want to put that.
I can definitely do that if you’d like. Now tell me a little about what brings you in today. I know the nurse met with you and got some information, but I’d really like to hear from you.
I’ve been having a cough for the past 2-3 weeks and it just won’t go away. I’ve had allergies in the past, but nothing like this. I’ve tried everything and it just won’t go away.
What medications have you tried so far?
Claritin, Benadryl, and Robotussin. Usually Claritin is my go to.
And you haven’t noticed any changes?
Okay, I can definitely put in a prescription for something stronger that will target your cough better. Did you have any other symptoms or concerns aside from the cough?
Nope that was all.
