At the hospital

A : Doctor’s office. Jane speaking. How can I help you?
B : I need to make an appointment with Dr. Kim.

A : Do you know your chart number?
B : No, sorry. It’s at home and I’m at work right now.

A : No problem. What’s your name, please?
B : Michale Staples.

A : Okay Mr Staples. Hold one moment while I grab your chart, please.
B : Sure.

A : Thanks for waiting. Now, what do you need to see the doctor about?
B : Well, I’ve been fighting a cold for more than a week, and I think I might have a chest infection or something. My cough is getting worse each day.

A : Hmm. Doctor Kim is off tomorrow. Do you think it can wait until Wednesday?
B : Oh, I was really hoping to get in today or tomorrow in case I need some antibiotics. Maybe I’ll have to go to the walk-in-clinic instead.

A : Actually, we had a cancellation for 2:00pm today if you can get away from the office.
B : Gee, it’s almost 1:00pm already. I think I can make it if I leave right now.

A : We’re running a bit behind schedule, so you can probably count on seeing the doctor around 2:30.
B : That’s great. Thanks for fitting me in.

A : No problem, Mr. Staples. We’ll see you in an hour or so.

[Update]
A : How can I help you?

B : I need to make an appointment for check up on my eyes. My eyes ache and are watery [teary, achy], while I look at monitor. [My eyes are tired staring at monitor].
