I always thought that doctors were overpaid.
They would have their nurses come in and take all the vitals.
They had a physician’s assistant do all the paperwork. The PA takes all the info to the doctor, who stares at the computer and decides what is wrong. Half an hour later, you are cold from sitting on a table with nothing but a paper gown between you and the doctor. He tells you what he thinks is wrong, and says the PA would be in to finish up. I saw that doctor for all of three minutes, and it cost me almost $5000 for that visit, and to be told I had a broken foot. I had a major leak in my bathroom, and the sewage was leaking through the floor into my kitchen. I needed an emergency plumber, regardless of how much it cost. My family was in the house for a birthday party. My sink smells like sewage, and I wasn’t happy. My family members were leaving without eating dinner, or having cake with my baby, who just turned 16. The plumber showed up about half an hour after I called, and told me he had to remove the upstairs toilet. He didn’t know if there was a sewer problem, or if there was a crack in the wax ring, but he had to remove the toilet. I told him thank you and asked him to please hurry. My husband stayed behind with the plumber as he handed me the credit card and told me to take the family to our son’s favorite restaurant. He said to video it when the waiters sing loud, and embarrass our son.
