And if it hadn't been for my sweet friend Becks, that would have never happened.
See, it was Becky who, a few months back found me this clinic which treats patients who have no insurance and charges them a sliding scale fee (click on the subject line to take you to their site).
My new doc (a very nice "Doogie Howser" type who D says "looks like he belongs on a skateboard") did a very thorough examination with lots of blood work drawn, wrote scrips for all my meds (including the depression ones), and I was only charged 25% of what the whole thing would have cost me had I not been on a sliding scale!
He even did a prostate exam (with blood - not with the finger up the "poop-chute"!) and checked my vitamin D level (for the bones and arthritis).
All in all, a very thorough exam, a very nice doc and a sweet friend who found him for me.
Oh yeah, speaking of the "poop chute":
I mean, that is what he's singing, right - "Don't take it up the poop chute?" *wink*
A sweet friend whom I have never met, and who is VERY special to me - someone who would think so much of someone they've never laid eyes on, made sure I got some great medical care!
Thank you, Becky for being such an angel! I LOVE YA'!
