Pokeman Go is all the rage. As an incredibly addictive game, with cute creatures, it is hard to resist for both old and young. For some businesses it has been a blessing as it draws more foot traffic, however not everyone is sure about the fun of Pokeman Go in Houston.
Recently, Houston's Mosaic Clinic has noticed that many patients have been catching Pokeman in the exam rooms of our clinics. "Patients will often make us pause and wait while they catch a Pokeman that just appeared, its interesting and different but it also slows down visits and makes other patients have to wait longer to be seen" Says Dr. Rashid. Patients have refused to proceed with a check in or a medical visit until the Pokeman is caught.
So, how do you battle a Pokeman epidemic infestation? Dr. Rashid & the Mosaic team have developed some innovative methods that sort of work.
1- When a patient sees a Pokeman and gets all excited, we will say "Not Again!" and throw something, like a shoe, in the direction of the Pokeman yelling "Out you devil creature Pokeman, get out of here."
2- We called local Pokeman Pest specialists but then realized we can just make our own Pokemanicide and Pokeman-repellent spray.
3 - We now have a sign saying Pokeman must also pay for co-pays and visit fees. Luckily, we discovered that Nintendo offers great benefits with health insurance. Unfortunately, the critters have great skin and hair so we do not have much to offer them during the visit.
Now the good thing is that Nintendo does have a system to get your site desisted. However, the Dermatology clinic is still weighing if this needs to be done. For now, we just let the patients have fun and try to have fun with the patients.
