Doesn't it seem that more and more physicians are running their practices like an assembly line? Example: Here's what happened to Bob-- Bob walked into the doctor's office and up to the window. The receptionist looked up and courteously gave him forms to fill out that asked for his name, address, medical insurance number and medical history, and told him to have a seat and fill it out. Fifteen minutes later, a nurse's aid came out, ushered him through the waiting room door, got his weight and height, showed him into an examining room, and asked Bob what he had. Bob said, "Shingles." She wrote down his complaint, went over his complete medical history, and told Bob to wait for the doctor in the examining room. A half hour later a nurse came in and asked Bob what he had. Bob said, "Shingles". So she gave Bob a blood test, a blood pressure test, and an electrocardiogram, and then told Bob to take off the rest of his clothes and the doctor would be right with him. The doctor arrived 20 minutes later and, after giving a quick glance at Bob's naked body, asked, "Where do you have the shingles?" Bob said, "Outside on the truck. Where do you want them?"
