My Family Physician
Posted: April 24, 2015
I learned two weeks ago that my family physician was being dropped from my health plan. It's too bad because I really liked my family doctor. But, since I signed up for Obamacare last April, I figured the best thing to do was to find a new family physician.
Since I had whatever cold was traveling throughout the area last week, I thought it would be the best time to introduce myself to a family physician at Marshfield Clinic. Even though the physician couldn't see me until early this week, I decided to see how the system worked that Marshfield Clinic has been promoting whereby an individual could make a same-day appointment with a medical practitioner.
Much to my amazement, I was able to see a physician's assistant within an hour of my phone call. I went to the Marshfield Clinic in Lake Hallie and learned that I had come down with a bronchial infection. I was administered an inhaler and antibiotics and feel considerably better than I did last week at this time.
In terms of the inhaler, I have a brother who has asthma and others in my household have suffered through bouts with breathing, so I understood how to use the device. But if you look at last week's issue of The Bottom Line and are wondering why your label may not be affixed to the newsletter properly, it's because I was under the influence of my new inhaler. I don't know how people who use an inhaler on a regular basis can function normally, since I was shaking the whole time I was putting the labels on last week's issue of the publication.
Fortunately, I am off the inhaler now and am only taking the daily doses of the antibiotic. Hopefully I will not have such a difficult time putting the labels on this week's issue.
