Certifying the Truth
    Personally, I haven't had the experience of someone asking me to make up some medical certification of an illness so that they may have an excused absence from school or work. But I've seen it happen.
    However, the tough part is when you know they're telling the truth but due to their illness they were unable to see you while they were sick. Medical Certifications only account for what the signing physician actually saw and examined. A consultation after a period of ...

Back in med school, I wondered a lot about the words we use to instruct our patients.  "Take"!  "Instill"!  "Reconstitute!"  As if doctor's instructions weren't confusing enough.  Fortunately, I have yet to encounter a patient who misunderstood my instructions enough to become a pharmacy thief.

    Looks like another year has passed and it's Dialogue Free Comics Day once more!  Organized annually by Noel Curry, he explains "Dialogue Free Comics Day" as follows:
    "Too often, when writing webcomics I forget that this is primarily a visual artform and so to emphasise that, I’ve set myself the challenge of posting a dialogue free comic on that day..."

Optic Crash

Did you know?
The device Dr. Rianne Nicah is using to correct errors of refraction in a patient's vision (e.g. near or far-sightedness) is called a "Phoropter"!
The chart a patient looks at with lines of seemingly random letters is called a "Snellen's Chart".

    This hilarious comic strip is by T. Andrew Dempsey, the heart and soul of the webcomic, My Life in the Trenches!

    Tim asked me if he could have Rianne guest in his comic as a doctor again, and I was more than happy to oblige!  Tim is one artist I know who gets the good doctor.  In this comic, it particularly shows in her prolonged interjection, "Dear Mother-of-Pearl!"

This comic strip is for 2011's April Fool's Day and features Desmon and Violet from Plus One by Dustin Reese!
It is apparently popular among cartoonists to do an April Fool's Day Comic Strip Switcheroo / Switcheroonie.  Last year I did one with roxxiiee who does the comic, Afrodite.  I had planned to organize a pretty grand one for 2011 but unfortunately it completely slipped my mind.

I only got reminded of the occasion at the non-recorded tail end of an episode of the TGT Webcomics podcast I c...

Ernest John Daryll Fiestan, author of the splendidly rendered Crazy Metro comic strip series, has produced several guest comics for Callous Comics in the past.  Check them out HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE!  He even made THIS fantastic piece for the 2010 Holiday season!

Crazy Metro has a nice set of characters and I figured I would try my hand at making a crossover comic as well!  I gave Ernest this comic strip several days ago but he insisted it appear here before he posts it anywhere else.

Today's guest comic is by Katherine Curtis, the great talent behind Our Perfect World comics!  I wonder what incredible awesomeness Rianne's patient went through?  Guess I'll have to search for the viral video...

Our Perfect World is a comic about how our world isn’t perfect (ironic, isn’t it?). It follows the life of Kat, a young adult attempting to discover what happiness is.  With her friends and family by her side, the comic explores the small things that make life epically hilariou...
