Plus. Hello. This is one of the two boys I'm having. He's cute.
A basic doctor's appointment goes as follows: sit in a waiting room, get weighed and have your blood pressure taken in the waiting room, then wait some more. Then wait until the doctor's nurse comes to get you. Then go into the room and wonder if you should have somehow prepared for the appointment. You're never told what the objective of the appointment is so it's hard to know what to expect. Sit with the doctor and tell him that "Yes I feel fine." Then stand there confused for a minute. What's next here? Do shoes come off? Do underwear come off? Am I laying down here? JUST TELL ME. Then do your shit, which generally means have ANOTHER ULTRASOUND. Get handed a slip for another appointment (you really don't get much say WHEN the next appointment time is), maybe have lab work, then pay right away.
Yeah. That's right. You have to pay for everything you have done, before you leave the hospital. No wonder why healthcare is generally less expensive here. There's no coders here, no insurance billing department, no collections department, nothing like that. I wonder what would happen if I left before the cashier called my name? I've thought about this before but then I remember how corrupt this country is and no fucking way I'm finding out.
