I was sure that my mamo experience would take longer, but once again I was in and out! I can’t say that I am great about getting medical checkups. Yes, my partner of almost 20 years is a doctor thru and thru, but he doesn’t get check ups and has never pushed me, except for annual visits to the gyno and for a mammogram.
I actually did get a full medical exam this year as well probably for the first time in many years.
Last week I visited my gyno, who I will be leaving after many years. Her bedside manner is atrocious and I won’t take it anymore. Tuvia is on the trail for a new one.
I had my appointment this morning scheduled for 8:45 and I was early. I filled out a few papers, just a few and I was immediately called in. I was escorted into a small room to disrobe into a soft, comfortable gown and then escorted to a waiting space. I was prepared to spend precious time reading with my Kindle but no wait time.
Into a small examination room for the primitive mamo. Too bad men don’t need mamos. If they had do go through the exam we would be far beyond this crazy boob press process, right?
A patient technician walked me through the process and without returning to the desk, I was out in less than 30 minutes.
What I love about the place is that years ago they created a wing just for women’s issues and that has made such a difference. Sometimes we need to be segregated don’t you think?
Now it’s time to prepare for the beaches of Cancun. My afternoon of beauty begins at noon.
