Name of Book???

I recently read an excerpt from a book and now I can't remember where I read it or what the book was called or even who wrote it.  Just wondering if this sounds familiar to anyone?  If so, can you please let me know the author and title??  Thank you!!

 

All I remember is that in the excerpt a guy was going in a lab for the first time to meet the doctor working there and he was expecting it to me an old man but the doctor is a young woman and she doesn't even look up and thinks he is someone there to bring her lunch?

 

So, I know this isn't much to go on at all, but I know I read this just recently some where so maybe someone else read it too and knows what I am talking about :smileyhappy:

 

Thank you for your help!

I know it's not. 

 

No it wasn't.  It was either an email that I got or some where on this website.

 

Thanks!
