Yes Kris, I know I'm lucky and believe I have a pretty good handle on things (so far).
You're right about the laundry list too. Because I feel rushed, I always forget something on the list. It is a screwy system -- the doc sent me for a stress test (treadmill) across town during a blizzard a couple of winters ago. After a 6 week wait for my next appointment with him, he told me they lost the test results. He asked me how I thought the test went.
I told him "I couldn't find a parking spot so I had to walk 5 blocks through heavy snow banks to the clinic for the test. As far as I know, it went well."
"Well, obviously your heart is OK", he replied.
I thought "(Who does he think he is? Henny Youngman?!?)"
