My Big 2 month Dr Appointment, minus the Doctor!

Last Tuesday I had an appointment with Dr Mendler. My lead Dr and Hepatologist at the Transplant Center. I only see him every 2-3 months only this time I didn't even see him!

I went armed with my carefully written questions but feeling good and waited a long time to be called in which is unusual in this office.

I was greeted by his Nurse Practitioner who I thought was doing a thorough pre Dr check list. Come to find out they were so very busy that apparently that was the extent of my appointment. My appointment with her was very thorough and she was able to answer my questions. She did an exam and we spent about 30 minutes together. I have seen her before and like her. I guess I am doing well enough that Dr Mendler didn't feel he needed to see me unless I requested it. I had just seen him a few weeks ago when he did my endoscopy so I elected not to wait for him.

Anyway, all is good.....and they say.......................*anytime*.........

I used to run into the same thing with my doc before my transplant as well, and honestly I liked the gal I met with more than my actual doctor. She was always very chatty, and much more open about telling me stuff - even the crap you don't want to hear.

Besides, if you're feeling good - "it's all good"....
