Some doctors are so good and some doctors...not so much.
The good news is Mikayla's biopsy came back negative. We are so pleased.
Thank you so much for your prayers on her behalf.
Love doctors who really care about their patients.
On the flip side, we had to take Joe to the doctor today.
He has been having really bad headaches..bad enough that they have made him throw up.
It doesn't happen a lot...but he had an episode about a month ago and now two more in the last week.
So, I made an appointment and took him in.
The doctor talked to us for a minute and then looked Joe over.
Then he said..."Well...strep throat is going around, so let's see if he has that."
He doesn't have a sore throat or a fever and has had periodic headaches. But you want to check for strep?
So he comes back in after about 10 minutes and says, "Well, he doesn't have strep."
so...he's all done with us and goes to leave and I say...uh...he's having headaches and he's throwing up and the doctor looks at me and says, "I don't think he has a brain tumor."
I don't think he has a brain tumor either, you moron.
I think he's having headaches and they are making him throw up.
Can you give him something for the headaches?
"Oh, sure. Just a second."
How can a doctor like that continue to practice medicine?
We will be avoiding all future contact with this particular doctor.
