(Medical Transcription Sample Report)
SUBJECTIVE: This 3-year-old male is brought by his mother with concerns about his eating. He has become a very particular eater, and not eating very much in general. However, her primary concern was he was vomiting sometimes after particular foods. They had noted that when he would eat raw carrots, within 5 to 10 minutes he would complain that his stomach hurt and then vomit. After this occurred several times, they stopped giving him carrots. Last week, he ate some celery and the same thing happened. They had not given him any of that since. He eats other foods without any apparent pain or vomiting. Bowel movements are normal. He does have a history of reactive airway disease, intermittently. He is not diagnosed with intrinsic asthma at this time and takes no medication regularly.
CURRENT MEDICATIONS: He is on no medications.
ALLERGIES: He has no known medicine allergies.
Vital Signs: Weight: 31.5 pounds, which is an increase of 2.5 pounds since May. Temperature is 97.1. He certainly appears in no distress. He is quite interested in looking at his books.
Neck: Supple without adenopathy.
Abdomen: Soft without organomegaly, masses, or tenderness.
ASSESSMENT: Report of vomiting and abdominal pain after eating raw carrots and celery. Etiology of this is unknown.
PLAN: I talked with mother about this. Certainly, it does not suggest any kind of an allergic reaction, nor obstruction. At this time, they will simply avoid those foods. In the future, they may certainly try those again and see how he tolerates those. I did encourage a wide variety of fruits and vegetables in his diet as a general principle. If worsening symptoms, she is welcome to contact me again for reevaluation.
