Hi, and welcome to Using English.
None of these are idioms.
Some sound like proverbs, but they are not proverbs I've ever heard.

There is play on the word "patient" = have patience and person seeing a doctor.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
