Trying patients

While shadowing a headache specialist in clinic:
Patient: All you neurologists keep saying the same thing about my headaches. I mean, there has to be someone who actually specializes in headaches. Maybe I need to go see them instead.

Headache specialist: I am a headache specialist.

Patient's wife: Yeah, but I'll bet you only see people with migraines. Not real headaches like his.
