I'm back from my second visit to the doctor in two weeks (congratulations, Ms. Lazygal, it's a sinus infection - and doesn't it make a nice follow-up to last week's upper respiratory infection?).
While I'm admittedly a bit old-fashioned about some things, there are things that it's right to be old-fashioned about. Doctors, for example. Now, I'm not complaining about the fact that with a few quick keystrokes my doctor can send a prescription to the pharmacy, or about the fact that my doctors are all aware of my various conditions and medications. That's probably all for the best, right? Safer, more holistic, etc..
What bothers me is that my doctor spends more time typing into her computer than she does talking to me. I feel like I have to repeat everything at least three times before she hears me - and even then I'm not sure whether it's fully sunk in. My former doctor did listen. Even better, she looked at me when I was talking to her. This one? Not so much.
Are all other doctors doing to be the same, or should I look for a new one?
