    I'm not a medical expert by any means, but after some recent appointments and stuff some of the nurses alluded to the fact that having you write it down, and then again having the staff hear it directly from you was intentional.
    That could be, but I honestly think it's because they are so overbooked (short on Dr's) that they don't have the time to review the records.

    If it hadn't been this same way for over 30 years at every doctor's office in the world, I might say you could be onto something...but, I don't think so.

    My wife sees the same doctor every time, over the last couple years. She never has to answer those questions because the Dr and her have a normal Dr/patient relationship where the medical professional actually shows interest in the patient's health. Unfortunately, in the socialized medicine of the military system, it's all about getting people in and out as fast as possible.

    The mods banning just about every half-prolific poster left on the Military Times Forum. I think I heard a death rattle.

    When your manning is so short that you can barely get by doing the minimum but they still take every available body to do base cleanup/beautification because of the Installation Excellence Award team that's coming next week. So now, we can't even get the minimum done.

    The What Pisses Me Off thread seems to be growing much more quickly than the What Makes Happy thread.

    Of course... everyone will remember the thorn in the palm, few remember the beauty of the rose.

    It robs someone of their life without giving them the dignity of taking their life.
