he was just trying to hook you into the endless cycle of coming to his office over and over again.
once i had a benign tumor on my forehead. the company that i worked for had changed insurance a few months before, and i had to go to a new primary
care doctor first.
the first visit, he spent a total of five minutes with me and ordered all kinds of lab work, had to wait a month to see him the next time. when i came
back the second time, just like the first time there was at least 50 people in the waiting room and more coming in every five minutes or so. i waited
for a hour to see him, again when he came into the exam room, he spent about five minutes going over the test results and telling me he found several
things that i needed to start taking medication for, before he could refer me to a surgeon, the third visit was was only a two weeks later, this time
he order some more test and also refereed me to the surgeon. also set up another visit, for two weeks.
when i went to the surgeon it was in and out and to the hospital in less than two weeks.
now during all this i started feeling like Sh@@, i told the doctor about that. so he started playing with the meds and kept me coming back.
this went on for all most a year, i finally told him on the last visit to his office that i would not be coming back and would no longer be taking the
medication he was prescribing for me. he asked why and i told him,
that i only came to see him for the referral, per the insurance company, and that i had no complaints about my health other wise. since i had started
seeing him and taking the medication that he was giving me, i was experiencing, just about all the side effects that the drugs said might happen.
furthermore judging by the number of people in his waiting room, and the amount of time he spent with me, he was just running a patent mill and
filling for dollars.
man was he pissed, that was almost 20 years ago and i haven't been to a dr, other than for a emergency type visit. and i feel fine.
