MEET THE NEW CLINIC, SAME AS THE OLD CLINIC

Now it's my turn to rip on civilian medicine.  My case manager here on post called the civilian doctor's office and said I needed genetics counseling, and they booked me with the wrong guy.  I wasn't supposed to go to that doctor yesterday at all; he is just a regular maternal fetal medicine doctor.  Absurd screw up on their part, costing me $14 in gas and a day's worth of confusion.  Oh, and costing my fellow taxpayers the amount of the worthless visit.  Which I'm sure is sky high.  I hope Tricare sticks it to them by only paying the bare minimum.

New appointment with a genetics counselor set for this Friday.  I have high expectations for this one.  I want Punnett squares and PowerPoints and a much higher level of detail than found on Wikipedia.

My case manager here was horrified and very apologetic.  I said that she ought to hear the litany of screw-ups over the past two years.  She said, "I know, and I was trying to stop that cycle, not make it worse!"

2 How refreshing that you have a case manager that is actually trying to stop the cycle. My fingers and toes are crossed for your appointment tomorrow!
