Change:- Make or become different.
Changes happening not for the sake of change but for ME 😊
Firstly not so much a change of healer as a looking at the benefits of a different practice
After several disappointing consultations over the past few months with my (older in years, single person practice) GP which ended in him stating he had no idea what the problem was, I took advantage of the fact that we are not tied to one Dr/GP (as is the case in other parts of the world) and made an appointment at a larger practice in our area – in my mind, just for another point of view.
Not an easy thing to do as I’m usually a ‘loyal’ person but I wanted an answer…..even if it was the same one.
After the initial niceties and explanations the first words the new Dr said were….well, let’s see what we can eliminate. Words I’d not heard from my original GP.
The upshot was that this and the follow up consultation, followed by a diagnosis and treatment that worked/cured the problem, had me thinking long and hard and making the decision to change to the new practice. One that has several Dr’s (of various ages, levels of experience, different medical interests) available, one that has xray and treatment rooms on the premises as well as allied health workers plus specialist rooms in an adjoining building.
A difficult decision to make – but after consulting the new GP a couple of times since then I’m confident I made the right one.
So after surviving our, and I’m not exaggerating, horrendous in many ways summer I’m finally in a better frame of mind and hoping to be back here on a regular basis. Not sure what I’ll natter about but will most likely find a joke or two here or there. Sadly no tidbits about Kiera – who I greatly miss. No o/s trips on the horizon either – although winter in Bowen, Far North Queensland is being mooted. We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it, meaning when the really cold weather arrives!
Bye for now….Cathy
