The Chiropadist, A doctor and nurse are embroiled in yet another chase scene around the office. As the nurse says, this chiropodist is "over-drawn, over-wrought and over sexed"

Tired of this perennial scene, the nurse takes the situation into her own hands and uses her sister, who is a lawyer, to help teach the doctor a lesson

Not only does the chiropodist learn his lesson, he has the tables turned on him in a surprise ending! (2 man, 2 women)

THE Gynecologist has an office full of pregnant women, including Dolly Dilly, who thinks she became pregnant while trapped in an elevator with a salesman

The salesman turns out to be the fiancee of the gynecologist's nurse! Everything gets worked out when it is discovered that the incident with the salesman happened well over nine months ago and that Dolly is simply "growing into her heredity" as the daughter of a circus fat lady. (2 men, 2 women)

The Physician is a day in the life of a doctor who, being a hypochondriac, lets himself be examined by a patient who is also a veterinarian. (2 men, 1 woman)

The Psychiatrist thinks he can cure anything including "auditory hallucinations." But can he really? It seems as if he still has hallucinations and so does his nurse and latest patient

The patient's office visit ends in a cacophony of sounds blending all three person's hallucinations-squawking chickens, whistling boats and barking dogs (2 men, 1 woman)

These four short comedies, each a hilarious visit to the doctor's office, can be presented separately or as a full evening
