  1. It is confusing… I figure either the Doctor gave specific advice about the patient’s golf swing so he doesn’t hurt his back again (Doctors are known for their love of golf) or he “prescribed” that the patient take golf lessons from a pro to avoid getting hurt again.

  2. Actually, I think “golf pro advice” is the ILLNESS he has which he is hoping is covered (rather than the treatment). Presumably, a golf pro told him to move and twist a certain way, which hurt his back.

  3. Although, looking at it again, Mike’s second idea (of a golf pro prescription) also works…

  4. In the third panel he is handing him a bill, not a prescription, so I don’t think he is talking about a prescription in the 4th panel.

  5. The doctor’s advice was on how to correct his swing so that he wouldn’t injure his back anymore. And the patient (sorry, I don’t know this comic) was hoping that the technical consultation was covered by his insurance.
    And since the patient’s wearing ugly plaid pants, one could assume that they had just spent the day doing some — uh — technical trials.

  6. I was about to type about the same thing as LostInTarnation, so I’ll just say I agree completely with him. In addition, I think it was his backswing that put him in the hospital.

  7. My take is that the bill is exhoribtant. The patient concludes that the doctor (known for their love of golf as mentioned above)has to pay for golf pro lessions. Kind of like a situation I had with a dentist. I only needed dental work right after the remodeling or redecorating of the dental office.
