    Are these sentences correct?

    Are these sentences correct?


    1- I'm really sorry doctor for calling
    you in your holiday to see my daughter.


    It is supposed to be his day off, so do we call it holiday?


    2- He told me to come to his clinic to x-ray her chest.


    3- Do you feel any pain?

    Is there another way to say it?


    4- What a nonesense! Your place isn't here Jane.

    She is talking to herself.

    1 - If it's just a day off, then it is not a holiday. If he is actually off work for a longer period of time, then he is on holiday.

    2 - I can only assume that "you" are the radiographer in this sentence. You have been asked to go to "his" clinic to X-ray the chest of a female patient. Is that correct?

    3 - Are you in pain?

    4 - What nonsense! Your place isn't here, Jane. (Note spelling of nonsense, and use of a comma before Jane.)

    So shall I say I'm really sorry doctor for calling
    you in your day-off to see my daughter.

    I can only assume that "you" are the radiographer in this sentence. You have been asked to go to "his" clinic to X-ray the chest of a female patient. Is that correct?



    No, I didn't mean this. Sorry for confusing you. The situation is like this:

    A father is telling his wife that the doctor (of the family) has asked the father to bring his daughter to the clinic in order to x-ray the daughter's chest.

    I hope it is clear now.

    1 - Doctor, I'm very sorry for calling you on your day off to come and look at my daughter.

    2 - He told me to bring her to his clinic so that he could X-ray her chest.
