I have 2 functions in my main(). When I call the first function void patient_main_menu(); it will leave me input all the required fields and it also will print to screen EXACTLY what I had inputed originally.

When the second function is called void doctor_main_menu(); it SKIPS/ Will not leave me INPUT the first field. I dont understand what I am doing wrong as it should be similar to the 1st function.

thx in advance for any advice
