    Do you any good?

    I'm reading Agatha Christie and wonder what it means:

    Do you any good?

    More context:

    I rather think he did - was the answer

    Thanks in advance

    Best,

    Olga

    Re: Do you any good?

    Is someone asking about a doctor? -

    "I had to call the doctor as I felt ill"
    "Do you any good?"
    "I rather think he did"


    Did he help you - yes, I think he did. "Do you any good" is a colloquial shortening of "Did he do you any good?"
