The Doctor Will See You… Later
So I get a form letter in the mail yesterday…
The doctor would like to speak with you about your test results. Please make an appointment.
Wha? What test? Which test? Does she want to talk to me about choleterol? My Thyroid Hormone (which, ok, was high last year and I ignored it) Fine, no problem. But there were a bunch of tests… did she find something horrible in my blood? Do I have cervical cancer? Am I going to start bleeding out my eyeballs?
A letter? And Two days for an appointment?
OK… the rational part of me knows that this is nothing serious, because (and I am hoping this is true) serious news would not be sent in a letter and then depend on me to get back to them to find out about it. I am thinking serious news would arrive via a phone call and tell me to get my fanny down to the office pronto.
Still… these new HIPA (HIPPA?) regulations make it impossible to get any info about what might be the impetus for this little chat from anyone but the doctor.
Guess I’ll just wait and see…
