some of those ornate ironwork doodads you make. Maybe some fance gates for his driveway (you know, to keep the irate patients from storming his house).
Tell him you're a pro, so there's no need to go out to his place and take measurements. Tell him the gates will be ready in 4 weeks.
7 weeks later, show up at his place with two gates. Make sure one is 2 feet wide and 11 feet high. Make the other one 6 feet 3 inches wide and 3 feet high. Install them.
Tell him they look great. When he complains that they don't match, don't meet in the center and don't span the whole driveway, give him one of those 'down the nose' looks and ask him who the expert is. Make sure your tone of voice conveys that "shit, why does a professional like myself have to put up with these BS questions from a friggin doctor? He probably can't even tell the difference between aluminum and stainless, much less know how to weld, grind or polish" attitude.
Then rush off, telling him that you're late for your next patient/customer/victim.
Don't forget to send him a really big bill and mark it past due.
