Had my time wasted this morning.
For the first time in 3 1/2 years, I have medical insurance — so the plan was made to go to the doctor for a check-up, to kick off a habit of regular care. Good idea, in theory.
Unfortunately, the place where we went, Lawrence Family Practice, is what I like to refer to as a “McMedical Center” — a crowd of doctors sharing a facility, joint reception, etc.
Mine, on the other hand….I was called in about 5 minutes after her. I was then weighed and had my blood pressure checked. (weight creeping back up, after dropping 60 pounds in the last year. Need to get back to regular exercise, which I’ve slipped on in past months. Blood pressure fine). I was then told that the doctor would be “right with me.”
An hour and a half later, having not seen a doctor, I walked out to the waiting room, and informed
The thing that really pisses me off is that the office wasn’t particularly busy. The waiting room was nearly empty.
I’ll be looking for another doctor….preferably one who doesn’t run their office like an assembly line.
