This blows me away!! I have been going to my primary doctor for many years. Well, I actually haven't seen my DOCTOR in several years. LOL! I always see his physician's assistants and am perfectly happy with that. I have never had them tell me that they could not get me in for something critical.
Late Monday afternoon I felt like I might be coming down with a urinary tract infection. I ran by the store and got some cranberry juice and some AZO pills (urinary tract pain reliever.) It was after 5 and I didn't feel too bad, so I went home and drank some juice and took some pills.
That night, I knew that I had better see the doctor the next day. So, the next morning, I got to the doctor's office 15 minutes before it opened. When they unlocked the doors at 5 minutes later, I walked up the the desk, told the lady I didn't have an appointment, that I had a UTI and I didn't care who saw me. She looked at the screen and said, "Lettie can see you in 20 minutes." HA! How is that for an awesome medical practice?!
And lest anyone think this is some non-busy doctor, it is actually a practice with 3 or 4 doctors and at least double that in PAs and I don't even know how many nurses. And the waiting room is almost always packed.
I think I will keep this doctor!
