Willow gives Dr. Megan Wilson a Medicare Jet-Setters Groovy Rating
It was past time for me to find a doctor in my new hometown. There were a lot of particularly good reasons to put it off. The new doctor might look at my feet and notice my toenails needed polishing. Being repulsed by this lack of personal care, she would reject me as a patient. Then COVID showed up and took it out of my hands for a while.
The weather got hot, and the AC on my car broke. How could I possibly drive five minutes to a doctor's office without AC in my convertible with the top down? As I thought about it, I decided this seemed like a perfectly good excuse not to go doctor hunting.
One glaring fact finally pushed me to find someone to be my doctor. All the refills on my prescriptions were expired. Staring at the bottle didn't do anything to cause the empty bottles to refill magically. At the recommendation of My Daughter-In-Law Karla, I looked up the phone number of Dr. Megan Wilson. When I called, the receptionist was so kind at helping me through the process of making an appointment, despite the fact that my hearing loss caused me to answer every question with "what?"
I was a little disappointed that she was accepting new patients, so the time came to put on my big girl panties and keep my appointment. The receptionist was as lovely in person as on the phone. Something is reassuring about a friendly voice, especially in these times of masks. After filling out an abundance of paperwork, the nurse Jenifer escorted me back to the dreaded step on the scale moment. I need to think about going on a diet. Jenifer was so kind and patient that she relieved my case of nerves as she went through the blood pressure, temperature, question-asking process. Jenifer left me to wait on Dr. Wilson, and I assumed this is the part where I sit in the empty room two or three lifetimes. I was pleasantly surprised when just a few minutes later, Dr. Wilson walked in.
One surprise followed another as I realized she was listening to what I had to say. Actually listening! "How is your pain today from 1 to 10"? I'm not fond of that question because I never know how to answer. That simple question always puts me in a conundrum. If I give a higher then necessary number, will she think I am a hypochondriac or believe I should have a more potent medicine then I need? I have always wondered if I have a high pain tolerance or maybe I don't feel it as much as others. Giving a low number is always an option, but what if she thinks I don't need to even be at a doctor's office. As those questions flitted through my mind, I realized how close she was paying attention, so I trusted her to make an appropriate decision on my treatment.
I got my prescription and another to help with the arthritis that gave me problems. When someone listens to you, as Dr. Wilson did, and you know you are heard, it feels a little like magic.
