First, let me say - I dislike going to the doctor. I normally walk in the office, wait with a bunch of sick people, see the doctor for 10 minutes, get his/her advice, & then get a prescription for whatever s/he thinks is the problem (which may not be the actual problem).
Now, I've luckily found a doctor that A) I like & B) is excellent. Here's how it goes down:
1. I walk into the office, talk to the receptionist, & pay my deductible.
2. I am given a pee cup, which I take care of.
3. I wait for 5 minutes in the waiting room.
4. The phlebotomist calls me, & I take care of filling a few vials of blood samples.
5. I wait in the waiting room again.
6. I get interviewed by the nurse, who takes my blood pressure, weight, & temperature.
7. I wait for a little longer.
8. I finally see the doctor, who has all the results of my bloodwork & urine. She knows what's wrong & we figure out a plan of attack.
Wouldn't you prefer the doctor's office to work that way?
Training may start again in April. I'm hoping for the first or second week. Woohoo!!
