I went to the doctors the other day, and was on time for my appointment. They didn't take me in until 15 min. past my appointment time. Took my blood pressure and they said it was 144/90 and the nurse said that was a little high. Its usually a little high when I go to the doctors anyway, because Im tensed up. I waited another 45 minutes for the doctor to come in. Which aggravated me inmensly!! My appointment was for 2:30 and I didn't see the doctor until 3:45. She comments my blood pressure was a little high and wants to take it again. Its now 150/104. I felt like saying "of course its high, Im on the urge of a coronary here from the wait!" But I didn't. Probably should have. Ask her about my heel spur which I figured I had from going online to WebMD. Never looks at my foot or anything. Just took by BP and asked a bunch of questions. Told me to get heel cups for the heels, and come back in six weeks for a full checkup. And yes, this is my first visit with the doctor as Im a new patient and had to set up a "New Patient Visit" first before they could see me for anything else. We have no insurance either, and got on a sliding scale fee. So I had to pay $15. But now she wants me back in 6 weeks to do the check up and Im sure they're expecting another $15 bucks. No wonder I had high blood pressure!!!
