I don't hate doctors. I hate the process.
I move small mountains to get a Primary Care Physician who will see me on Election Day, when I have time off, so she can give me a referral for my shoulder, which has hurt for eight months. I couldn't get in with the new doctor for three weeks, because he only sees new patients on Thursdays and because one of those Thursdays was Thanksgiving. I make an appointment for 1:40 today, so I only have to miss two classes that are pretty easy to cover. I get there at 1:35. The nurse calls me in at 2:15 to see the doctor. The doctor looks at me and talks with me for ten minutes, then says I need to get an MRI. The MRI needs insurance approval. They're working on that. I have no idea when I'll be able to have one, but wouldn't be surprised if it were weeks away.
