Seattle Health magazine asked local pediatricians, "What are some of the funniest or most amazing things your kid patients have said to you?” for their fun Child's Play column.
Some Everett Clinic pediatricians contributed and a few of their quotes were included in the article:
"[From a] kid diagnosed with chickenpox: ‘But I haven’t even been kissing the chickens!’” —Deborah Zaret, M.D., pediatrician, The Everett Clinic, Harbour Pointe, Mukilteo
"A 5-year-old with asthma told me, ‘I have a case of the wheezles.’” —Katherine Runyon, M.D., pediatrician, The Everett Clinic, Everett
"One patient recently said to his mom when he saw me, ‘I have a blond doctor!’ which was pretty funny because my hair is pure white.” —Jane Lester, M.D., pediatrician, The Everett Clinic, Everett
