Today’s word is “practitioner.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

    I’ll enter my rant, here. I went to a nurse practitioner, a little over two years ago, because my regular doctor’s schedule was full. It was the end of the year, and my health insurance wanted me (everybody) to have a regular checkup. As it turned out, this practitioner also did (and does) lady-related things. How convenient, I thought, I’ll get my pap smear out of the way. It was additionally recommended to me, just because, to do a test involving those Cologuard commercials you may have seen on television a time or two. Over the course of the rest of the next year, I got a letter for each topic saying that I should contact the office for the results. I called repeatedly; they didn’t have the results. Not only that, the nurse (not, in other words, the nurse practitioner herself), the assistant I spoke with told me they had no record of me getting those tests. Well, I took pictures to document the test that I sent in. Plus, what kind of crazy would remember putting her feet up in stirrups if it hadn’t happened? I eventually became angry. I had to tell them I took the pictures of the colon-related test before the practitioner’s nurse would be serious. Actually, I think I got someone else on the phone on the day that I was taken seriously; perhaps the nurse was out of the office for the day or no longer working there. I was called back in a few days. I was told that the colon test was negative. (I don’t know if they just took a fifty-percent [or better] chance and chose to say it was negative.) I hadn’t had the test because of symptoms, it was simply routine.

    As for the Pap smear… also routine. The nurse practitioner relayed to the person I was now speaking with on the phone that she remembered taking the sample for the test. The end.

        Yeah. My doctor (family doctor or general practitioner) retired a couple months ago. I wish things had gone well with the office management of this nurse practitioner (who I do feel is quite competent herself). As it is, I won’t be making her my regular health professional. I considered giving them another try (and perhaps that nurse was incompetent and is gone), but I just think that was too extreme. 😰

        Dang. And it’s such a good location.

      For some reason, the pingback got caught up in my spam folder. I don’t know why.
