The Soul Of Brevity

Why use fifteen words to say what you can say in six, and still arrive at the same meaning?
"Speech Therapy to visit patient for eval on patient having difficulty in swallowing at times."
Why not just say--
"Speech Therapy to eval and treat" and then you call or fax the speech therapist the patient's symptoms, or since we're in the medical field and are known to do all that abbreviating--
"ST eval/tx."
Cripes, people...
