Caller: I need to leave a message for the doctor, please.
Me: OK. May I ask your name please?
Caller: Jane Cummings
Me. Thank you and your phone number, please?
Me: And the message you’d like to leave, please?
Caller: Doesn’t he have voicemail?
Me: Yes, he does. But because we are a government entity, everything needs to be in triplicate. After you leave this message AND the voicemail, I’m going to need to ask you to call back and leave a 3rd message of exactly the same content.
