Just to see what would happen, & also I guess to learn if they really do read those annoying health history lists patients always have to fill out at doctor appointments, yesterday I checked off every single “Current Problems/Symptoms.” These ranged to everything from fatigue to chest pain to panic attacks to genital lesions. (By the way: Why on earth would my eye doctor want to know about, well, any of those things, especially the latter?)
What happened was: a big fat NOTHING!
I finally mentioned what I’d done with the list to the medical technician I saw before the doctor, just to see what she thought. She turned to me & erupted in a knowing laugh which told me she’d already looked over the sheet & knew it was purposely false information.
. . . Which brings me to 2 Highlights of the Appointment:
1. Being reminded that my clever eye doctor had channels made into my latest pair of custom-fit PROSE contact lenses for added confort &
2. The medical techician I saw introducing herself right off the bat! *** That’s a huge deal in patient care because meeting friendly medical staff can Make or Break your day.***
