" So, what I'm gonna run some blood tests to see if there is infection and take some pictures of your abdomen/head(or whatever) to see if what is happening inside and then we shall schedule a follow-up and discuss the treatment options. Is that okay with u?"

You explain what the Diagnosis is about. If it is MI - u say there is a blockage of your blood vessel supplying your heart.

and the next step - you can say - Im going to order some blood tests , and take a picture of (depending of chief complaint) , and then we can discuss the results and give you a more accurate diagnosis.

Another hting which i did which i think is very important is - ask the pts what they think is wrong with them before you explain about the diagnosis and tests. No wonder i had asterixis in both SEP and CIS

You can say we will discuss this further once i get the results and everything will be done today.

Just remember - You need to be a better actor than the SP.
