Doctor, Doctor, Give Me The News......

My appointment was for 4:00 this afternoon. I finally saw the doctor at 5:00! He stuck his head in the door and peeked in before entering and asked if I was still okay. He said he always likes to check first when he is running so behind. It made me laugh. If it was any other doctor I would have been so pissed, but I really like this guy. This was my second visit with my new holistic MD. We were going to go over my lab work.

We sat and talked, and talked, and talked. He listened so carefully to everything I had to say. We talked about my health, my concerns, my new vintage shop, my hyper personality and much more. He never rushed me. He let me ask a hundred questions....and that is why I don't care if he is an hour late. I know I will have his undivided attention for as long as I need it when it is finally my turn.

It was another great visit with this amazing doctor. We discussed my supplements, my diet, what I'm doing, what I'm not doing and so much more. I have some things I need to change where my diet is concerned. I need to get off the gluten again and cut out the dairy. I need to eat more veggies....strange since I'm a vegetarian isn't it? He's right though.

My heart panel was excellent and that was good to hear. We spent a lot of time discussing my blood pressure. I've been off the meds for a few months, but my pressure isn't where it needs to be yet. We talked about things I can do to bring it down more.

I left there feeling so good about not just my health, but about everything. Can't remember ever leaving any of my former doctors and feeling that way. Thanks Doc!

I need to find someone like him! My doctor experiences since moving to Alabama have not been so good!

Hi Kathy, I'm just back from vacation and caught up on your blog posts. You have been BUSY!!!

So glad you're liking your new doc and feeling good about the time he's spending with you and the direction you're taking for your wellness. Yeah!

Great to hear you've found balance for your businesses. I'm a little jealous that you got to hang at the flea market and shop. It looks like some great finds.

And all the baby news. I'm thrilled for you! It's almost time.

Glad things are going so well for you. Cheers, jj

Good to hear! It is really such a rewarding experience when you have a doctor who is attentive to your needs as a person and not just the science. I hate feeling like a petri dish.

This: "I need to get off the gluten again and cut out the dairy".-Ditto!

To good health!
