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!
