Doesn't it seem that more and more physicians are running their
practices like an assembly line? Here's what happened to Buford:
Buford walked into a doctor's office and the receptionist asked him what
he had. Buford said, Shingles. So she wrote down his name, address,
medical insurance number and told him to have a seat. Fifteen minutes
later a nurse's aid came out and asked Buford what he had. Buford said,
Shingles. So she wrote down his height, weight, a complete medical
history and told Buford to wait in the examining room.
A half hour later a nurse came in and asked Buford what he had. Buford
said, Shingles. So she gave Buford a blood test, a blood pressure test,
an electrocardiogram, told Buford to take off all his clothes and wait
for the doctor.
An hour later the doctor came in and asked Buford what he had. Buford
said, Shingles. The doctor asked, Where? Buford said, 'Outside on the
truck. Where do you want them?

Hi Pauline,

Just reading through some posts trying to gather help and information. Came across your post and it invited me to read because I wanted to laugh as somehow it helps with the pain.

Thanks for taking the time to post it. Hope you're doing well.
