Put on This Gown
Some of our decisions are not so good, but others are. Some are even funny. A couple of months ago, my GP referred me to a specialist. I read her reviews on the internet: Most were negative. Never mind the 5 minute max that so many doctors have, this one, according to her reviews and the people talking about them on either side of me, had a two minute limit. Since making the appointment, I kept trying to figure out how she could see and deal with my problem in such a short time. I wore a cape-like top that I would be able to quickly lift up and say, "Look, please." I would not say "hello" or any other unnecessary words. So, I get into the examining room and there is a nurse holding a gown and saying, "Put this on...." I was flabbergasted (I figured my 2 minutes were already up!) so I very brilliantly said, "You want me to wear that!" The bottom line: The doctor came in and sized up the situation very quickly. Before I knew it, I had minor surgery (required sutures and bandage) done by a very caring doctor. Just goes to prove that one should not believe everything one hears or sees!
