The Impatient Patient

This weekend, I’m taking a trip which I’m not really too keen on taking.  I’m going back to see the doctor.  It doesn’t matter if he’s good-looking.  I simply dread having to drag myself to the clinic, and wait for hours until the doctor finally arrives.  Sometimes I think the Armageddon is coming before he is.

I wonder why doctors no longer do house calls.  Or do they still do that in some places?  I just hate the fact that despite how miserable you feel, you have to force yourself to make a trip to the doctor- oftentimes alone.  And then you’re left to wait for the doctor like a teenage girl waiting for her prom date.

Before I go and see any kind of doctor though, I make it a point to check out their credentials.   I found this online doctor database with a physician list which pretty much covers all doctors in the country.  It includes their work experience, clinic hours and hospital affiliations.  It’s a bonus when they have their picture posted as well.  That helps me visualize talking to them.  I think it’s good that we have access to this kind of information.

My right nostril is getting stuffy again.  I’m going to rest first- and think about what I’m going to wear to my doctor’s appointment…
