On the Wall at the GYN

When I head to the doctor’s office, I rarely pay attention to the art on the wall. Most of the time, I am wrangling children, reading a book (if lucky enough to be alone), or catching up on e-mail (hello smart phone). There could be some amazing art on the walls, but I’m sorry to admit they are usually wasting their money trying to impress me with it.

All of this may have changed the other day. I had my annual gynecologist appointment. After I put on my magical paper gown, flicked the ready switch, covered my legs over, I sat with nothing to do but wait. Everything else was on the chair with my clothing. Suddenly, I looked up on the wall to this:

Waiting room art

The next thing I knew, I was laughing. It was like I was a middle school student in a health class. I knew that I had to pull myself together before my exam. I also knew that I HAD to take a photo there was a blog post here.

Did you notice what made me laugh? If not, take a close look at the artists name. I am not making fun of it, just think it’s hilarious since I was sitting with stirrups starring me down in a paper gown. It made me wonder if they had done it on purpose. Perhaps to see if patients were paying attention and to provide a little comic relief since so many people get anxious while waiting within this type of medical practice. I think I like this more than the anatomy posters or ads for different medications. It made me think and laugh at the same time.

So my question to you this week:

Do you look on the walls while waiting for your doctor? I would love to know if you have ever noticed anything like this. It really makes me wonder if others may be doing similar hidden funnies for patients to find.

It's Me

    That’s funny! I do look around at stuff on the walls to pass time but have never found anything like that.

  • That is funny!! I do look but most of them just have their diplomas.

  • My gyno has funny OB/GYN cartoons stuck to the ceiling!

  • Catherine L. says:

    I do look around, but I’ve never found anything like that. Thanks for the laugh!

  • LOL That made me laugh so much!

    Um yes I do look at the walls. Some have all sorts of different things. I usually wonder about the boring artwork though…I guess this one is NOT boring at all :)

    Happy Friday!

  • I totally do this! I always feel like I’m 13 again and look around to see who thinks I’m crazy but somethings are just too funny and you need a sense of humor to get through life. :0)

    Holy Cow- what were they thinking? At least it wasn’t the OB’s work of art. I’d be running.

    They built this super breast cancer wing at our local hospital with a bazillioin dollar donation they got. I have never been so uncomfortable in a waiting room in my life. You check in at a main desk and they tell you to go wait in an area which is basically a cubby for women waiting to get their boobs smooched. There is nothing on the walls, no fish tanks, and no hole in the wall to see what’s going on with the people working there. It’s basically 4 ugly walls with a door. One more reason to put off getting screened….

    Have a great weekend!

    Great name! I don’t ever really look at the walls…I have always read a book or now played on my phone. But what is this about a ready button…my doctors don’t have those!

  • Cathi says:

    I tend to look at the walls everywhere! ;)

  • Lori says:

    On a similar note, it wasn’t art., but when I delivered Willow Colin went out to get a soda from the vending machine. They were not selling coke or pepsi, they were selling an off brand of soda called PUSH cola.
    We still laugh about it.

    I always read what’s on the wall when I’m in the examining room waiting for the doctor to come in. And yes . . . I immediately saw the artist’s name! LOL!
