It’s good to keep ….

all those ducks in line! You never know if/when you will need them!
What I truly I look at it all for is to see if the office is well run? The doctor is petty much on schedule? Are the staff polite to patients and vice-versa? Frustration vibes in an office are indications of deeper practice problems!
My own neuro often runs late but he always takes TIME to explain, discuss and elaborate on treatments/problems and I know that he does that for Each PATIENT! So If I get there on time? I expect usually a 20-60 minute wait for my turn. He’s taking more time with someone else who needs it more than I do at this point. I do not mind a bit. When I truly need to discuss issues with him? He listens…really listens! I count my blessings and luck every single day I am able to get out of bed on my OWN!
Besides finding a ‘personality’ that you can relate to and/or trust goes far. If you can’t connect in any way w/a doc? You are going to have problems in the future…no way around it. Just getting by is hard enough. Keep at it and fight your way out of that paper bag! You know what I mean.
