Random Thoughts

Thoughts while shaving

by Jim Tierney

Do you find yourself sitting in a doctor’s office longer and longer at each
visit?? A two hour wait isn’t unusual these days and the doctor and his/her
staff seem to accept it as normal. It’s no wonder, when the doctor books
patients 10 minutes apart and the slightest delay at any time will back things
up. When you DO finally get to see the doctor you’re in and out within a few
minutes after waiting two hours. Are you old enough to remember the family
doctor, the general practitioner, who treated you for ALL your ailments? He
didn’t refer you to a “specialist” for any little thing and even made home
visits, leaving instructions “take two aspirin and call me in the morning”. I
saw a doctor’s sign the other day that said “Specialist… left leg only”. I’M
KIDDING???... someday, maybe.
