To start off, im just venting.. and a little peeved & laughing a little. My wife and i moved and our Pediatrician was a solid 30 minutes away. We decided to check one out closer. A apointment was made and we took our little guy in. To start off we already had all of our sons medical records faxed to the new pediatrician (so they already had everything).. so of course when we show up the grouchy woman behind the Glass hands me a clip board saying "All new patience must fill out the paperwork" OK, seriously ? you have my insurance card and all my sons medical information since birth, No go, she had to have it. So i start reading questions... in no particular order and only listing a few of the ones that got me scratching my head. Are there any firearms in the home ? are they kept safe and locked ? your annual income ? mothers & fathers places of employment, time at job, title, social security number, work phone numbers. Are mother and father married ? live in the same house ? children from other partners living in house ? and on and on and on.. I was to the point i was reading out loud in the waiting area and about every third questions i was awnsering myself (none of there buisness) So after i handed back the paperwork with very little of it filled out... (((((wasnt any of there buisness))) and frankly it looked more like a zeroxed online application for a job than a medical questioniar. We were escorted to a room, myself wife, and son.. after a few minutes a barely 18 year old tiny bopper girl strolls in in pigtails popping her chewing gum and states there are a few more questions.... Ok Her: Are you married, do you live together ? and who does the child stay with ? Me: Yes, were married and whats this got to do with my son's medical checkup ? and why are you assuming that we dont live together ? and of course OUR SON LIVES WITH US !! her: these are just questions we have to ask, do you rent or own a home, does the child live in a home ? ME: that is absolutely none of your buisness ! whats this all about ? these are not medical questions.. her: Im sorry sir, but these are standard questions me: STANDARD ? ive never been asked anything like this in a doctors office, this seems very personal and has nothing to do with our son.. her: Is there running water in the home ? electricity ? a functional heat source ? ME: what ? what? what? why are you asking us these things ? this is none of your buisness !!! her: I can see some of these are bothering you, and ive skipped some of the more sensitive ones.. me: young lady, Im not ansering another question if its not related to medacine or my sons medical history. She gets up and walks out.. HERE'S THE KICKER !! she comes back in the room very, very, red in the face and appoligizes ALOT, i guess the questionare she had was not intended for us and there was a mix up of some kind.. the reason i laugh a little is what situation at a pediatricians office would call for a questionare like that ? On the flip side the doctor was very nice and our son seemed to do well with him durring the examination.
