A work friend at CAP recommended my long-beloved LA primary doctor. You know, the doc who drove twice at night to check on me after fusion on the spine problem he diagnosed for me
The DO who convinced me the stereotactic biopsy was not just like an old puncture wound. In fact, the expert tech was pleasant, from home, and had done some work perfecting the equipment.
And an NP who sat down with me and my lump and drew a map/list of which doctor to see first and which test to take next and then and so on in order til I calmed down and did it all.
Those dear and fun radiation techs who made most of radiation feel like a family visit.
That young woman at acute rehab who brought dental supplies from her home after the rehab place lost my stuff.
And that kind, fun surgeon that I did mention before..who does "fancy."
Okay it's not good to praise some people more than others.
Pretend you're looking in my old diary.
SO varsity sports have rules; and I think really healing medics are the ones I liked...
If I put up a list of rules for medics, what would they be?
It's good to have a sense of humor if the pt does,
It's good to listen when the Pt says NO
It's good to avoid unnecessary consults.
I's good to ask another doctor if it will save the pt from misery and bancruptcy.
I rest my case.
I wish you health.
