oh new insurance and new doctor - why do you torment me so?
we ended up switching from our PPO to Kaiser...i was reluctant to do so, but hey, a $3000 difference makes a difference - especially when half of your household is unemployed.
i really hated to switch. i loved our old doctor. he was young. rather hip. kept the Husband on the straight and narrow with his diabetes (conversely, he kept me on the straight & narrow. dammit.), and he was WAY too good looking for one man.
(best laugh Brendan had was after my first visit, i came home and announced that this doctor would NEVER EVER look at my hoo-hoo. not a chance. don't ruin it for me, k?)
but Kaiser, i have to say, wins the all-time world champion super-duper bowl for communication.
i have never EVER seen any company be as proactive and easy to communicate with. i've got an appointment with my new primary care AND an opthamologist this Tuesday - probably eye surgery in my immediate future, but nothing serious so there you go.
got a message from them, informing me that it was time for my annual
so a trifecta of fun awaits me. i'm getting examined, smeared, and dilated.
damn. it sounds like such a party, i may order out for wings.
luckily, my new primary care, although a good looking man, is not the rock-star god my old doctor was.
thanks be to God. that means he may see my hoo-hoo. time to spruce up.
