English conversation  / Doctors 24 hour Clinic
Vikram has had a bad fall. Mrs.Verma takes him to emergency ward of Doctors 24 hour Clinic

24 hour Clinic Receptionist : Good morning, Madam

Patients waiting to make appointment
Mrs.Verma : Can I see Dr.Raman? My son his hurt his knee. 

24 hour Clinic Receptionist: Did you make medical appointment, Madam?

Mrs.Verma : No. But then I hadn’t expected my son to have a fall and hurt himself. I couldn’t make medical appointment for child accident, could I have? But I must have the child’s knee treatment and dressing done urgently. 

24 hour Clinic Receptionist: Don’t get excited, Madam. The doctor does attend to emergencies, though normally the doctor is so busy that he can only see patients who have made prior medical appointment,

.Mrs.Verma: Then what shall I do? Shall I go to urgent care hospital?                                                                      
24 hour Clinic Receptionist: Please wait here, Madam. I’ll fit you in between the appointments. In the mean while, please fill in this form. Is the child’s knee painful bleeding ?
Mrs.Verma No. The bleeding has stopped.

Call you the moment the doctor is free.

Dr. Raman: I understand your son has had a fall and has knee ligament injury. Come along young man. I’ll have a look at your knee.. 
An elderly woman gets up and hurries forward towards the doctor. 
Elderly woman: Oh Dr.Raman, you can’t see him first. It is my turn. I’ve made medical appointment. 

Dr.Raman: Hello, Mrs.Sonia , I know it is your turn, but this child needs immediate attention.He needs knee treatment. I’ll see you right after child’s knee wound dressing.
Dr.Raman: It won’t be long, Mrs.Sonu. Please excuse me for a few minutes. Mrs, Verma, please bring your son into the treatment rooms
All three of them go into the treatment rooms of 24 hour Doctors clinic. 
Dr.Raman: (Examining the wounds). This is a nasty wound. You have knee swelling. Do you have pain behind kneeYou have Knee ligament Injury which causes knee pain

Goodknowledge and satisfactory conversation drill is important in English speaking. These tutorials would not only prove an asset to the reader speak English fluently in his daily life, but also on special occasions like interviews for jobs, etc. He would be able to face the interviewers with equanimity and confidence.
