March #SOLC17 Day 30
Since it was spring break, we thought that it was a good time to schedule an appointment with a new internist. My husband, friend, and I each made an appointment with a new doctor.
Carrie and I were scheduled first. Carrie was ready for her 8:30 A.M. time. Apparently, Dr. No-name wasn’t. She met with Carrie about 45 minutes later and began a one hour interview. Luckily, Carrie had great blood tests results. That helped the discussion to flow well. In the end, Dr. No-name recommended that she not eat after 7:00 P.M. That’s reasonable.
My turn was at 10:00 A.M., or so I thought. We didn’t start our interview, or should I say interrogation, until a bit later. To say the least, there were some issues with my bloods test results. So, I accepted the fact that I would need to add a medication to my daily regimen.
Dr. No-name practically had my entire medical history at her finger tips in the computer. However, she insisted on asking me about every detail of every surgery and medical procedure over and over again. She asked a multitude of questions about my cancer treatments from nine years ago.
I was so frustrated and overwhelmed. I just wanted to run like the wind and get out of there. Instead, I still had my exam to get through. Finally, Dr. No-name suggested a U-Haul worth of medication. I turned most of it down. She still entered into the system orders for me to make appointments with several specialists.
I left her office feeling like I had been chewed up and spit out. When I got home, I explained what I went through to my husband. Since he was meeting with next, I thought that I should give him a complete run down.
He told me that he was going to make an appointment with someone else. His said that he was going to schedule a meeting with Dr. Mbogo who was Gomez Adams’ doctor from the Adam’s Family. He said that Dr. Mbogo would dance around a little and spread a few herbs here and there. Suddenly, all ailments would be healed.
Where o where is Dr. Mbogo today? Modern medicine just can’t compete with the potions of a great medicine man.
