The Medical Chart
Well folks, it was that time of year again. Time to take this old vehicle of mine in for a bit of yearly maintenance. Unfortunately such matters can't be done in just one appointment. I have to go to one Doctor to check the oil. Another to check the battery. Yet another to make sure my tires are property inflated.

For the most part, this seemed to be the usual go around until the Doc noted that I was over 40 years old. There seems to be a series of preventative testing that until today, I didn't know were routine! I thought that only if you were experiencing problems a probing was in order.

I'm really not cool about this, but worse yet - the Doc doesn't seem cool about me not being cool about it! He wrote something down in my chart, snickered and walked out of the room. A few minutes later the nurse comes in with a few prescriptions and referrals to the above mentioned specialists. Leaving me bugged out on what the Doctor has written down in that thing!!

    Yeah, too bad you can't get a complete tune-up for one low price.

    Sometimes I wonder if they get some kind of fee from the other doctor for referrals.
    Perhaps we could start a series of new jokes that begin " How many doctors does it take to do a physical?"
    It depends on how many are willing to pay for the referral.

    Lemme guess, the "gyn" entered the wrong place looking for "blood"?? That's what starts at my GYN's practice when you hit 40. Quite the surprise when you are not expecting it.
