Would you believe that yesterday when I had my appointment with my GP I said no to some medication. Not because I was going with out pain relief but because he offered me so much medication. I walked awau with 4 different types of medication. Something to help me sleep, something for the pain my blood pressure meds. [ which is so good the doc had to take it twice to make sure he had the right reading. My anti depression meds. Yes it was a great visit.
I have my flu injection March every year, this year something happened and I got mine yesterday  at the doctors] usually I need to get a scipt for it, no he gave it too me there. I could not even tell you where they gave me the injection now.
So I left feeling pretty good. When my DH asked me what took so long, I had to explain we talk like friends. No I am glad I went to this doctor now.

Kathy, I am glad you had a great doctor's appointment. It is a wonderful feeling
to leave the doc's office knowing that your concerns were heard and believed and
that your symptoms are being treated. A good doctor will always take time for his
patients. I'm glad you found one.

Hi Kathy,

I too am happy that you had a good doctors visit. It sounds like he is thorough. You are fortunate. Is this the first time that you have seen this particular doctor? I am happy that everything went so well.

Best wishes to you for a wonderful day.
