"I Shaved my Legs for This?"

As the song goes......
"I shaved my legs for this?"

I had a doctor's appointment
for this morning. They even called
me yesterday, to remind me to
show up on time.

I show up and they looked surprised
to see me. The Dr. is in surgery, she
said with a quizzable look on her face.
Then she said, oh, well Brian is going
to be looking thru these charts, maybe
he can do something. Who the heck is
Brian and do I want him looking at my
chart?

As she looks for mine to give him
(he is with another patient) she says,
"oh, I can take care of this for you."
She tells me the results for my test.
End of story. Oh, yea, with the add of
you will need to come back and have
your test done again. I said, EXCUSE
ME??? In 3 years, she says and smiles
My question, but the phone rang and
she dismissed me, is why the heck
couldn't she tell me yesterday? I went
all thru this for what? I sure hope I
don't see a office call on that bill.

So on the way home,
the song came to mind....
I shaved my legs for this?

I BET YOU DO RECEIVE A DR BILL. THEY'LL PROBABLY CALL IT A "LIMITED" OFFICE VISIT FOR ABOUT $48.

And they wonder why we no longer have faith in our Doctors!

You need to bill them for the gas and your time! That is HORRIBLE! Who read your test results to you in a open environment? A nurse -- a secretary?

I will never forget the attorney who had a radiology procedure at exactly 1:00 o'clock. If it did not go as scheduled -- it was going to cost! How much is your time worth? We were sure snappin' to make him happy!

Hurting the pocketbook is all some people understand.

Just like that bank commercial, they'll probably charge you extra because you used the "excuse me?" exclamation. Oh well, you're still alive...
