Letters to the Editor for July 26, 2010


Inefficient way of doing business
To the editor:
When I buy groceries, I take a list of the items I need and buy them all at once. I do not run to the store each time I need one thing.
This method is economically sound in both time and money.
I have been in the habit of applying the same principle to my medical care, in so far as it is practical to do so. I do not like to waste my time and effort running to the doctor for every little thing. 

When I go to the doctor, I take with me a list of the medicines and vitamins which I am taking and a list of the medical items which need to be discussed. That has been a lifelong habit. Well, my life has gone on a long time, and it seems that the medical profession is changing the way things are done. A doctor’s visit is limited to no more than 15 minutes by the clock. If further discussion is necessary, I must make another appointment.  Not only that, but my most recent request to see a doctor about my hip and knee requires me to choose one and to make another appointment for the other. I like my doctors, but this method is not meeting my medical needs, and is putting an unnecessary burden on me physically and time wise.  

Anyway, I always thought that my hip and knee were somehow connected!
