Dr. Yes

I know I am over weight and I know that my blood pressure is elevated and I know that I have not had a physical in about thirty years; so I scheduled an appointment for a checkup.

It was all new to me and there were not too many friendly faces during the check-in process so it was a relief when Rose called out my name because Rose was friendly.

Rose took my weight and height and then escorted me to an examination room where she asked me some questions and then took my blood pressure. Whenever I have my blood pressure taken, I will be asked if I am nervous, I always answer, “Yes”. She then told me that the doctor would see me once he finishes with another patient and she motioned to the adjacent room. I then said, “Thank you, Rose.”

Dr Win can in about fifteen minutes later. We did the regular examination things. I told him of my mom’s high blood pressure and that my dad most likely died of heart disease.

He said my weight was high but that I shouldn’t worry about loosing all the weight that would get me down to what would be ideal and he said that my blood pressure was high but that cutting down on salt and exercising more would drop it.

It was all good to hear but he didn’t even tell me that I should do those things only that I could.

He then massaged my balls and sent me on my way.

I can't believe he massaged your balls after just meeting you. He could have at least bought you lunch.

Stuff like that seems to be happening a lot lately.

At least sometimes, I do get lunch.

Melissa said...

I think it has something to do with the fact that you're easy.

No rectal probe?

If I was probed recently it was not by Dr. Yes.

He actually said "We don't stick anything up anywhere" before he grabbed my balls, and I thought, "Sheesh, WTF?"
