Men, like me, are always being fussed at for neglecting our health. I'm certainly no exception. I'm 37 and I've had a few issues that probably need a specialist but I decided to get a physical exam, a check up, at a general practitioner's office beforehand, especially since I have never had one. But the experience was not a good one. First, the doctor was not even in, a fact that was never mentioned. I saw a nurse practitioner, who talked with me for five minutes and said I should see a specialist. But she did nothing else! There was no exam at all, no blood test, urine test, etc., to check for anything else, which is what I thought I paid for. I guess I looked okay to her! I would say that maybe she could see it in my eyes that I was healthy but since she didn't look in my eyes that possibility is out! I had already paid the $90 fee before I went to the exam room. Ninety bucks for an uninsured grad student! I just got up and left without saying much. What should I have done? Maybe I'm over-reacting but when you pay for care, I think you should get it!
