Here is a positive short story about our much-maligned medical system. On Friday morning I head to the walk-in clinic at Washington Park as I am getting concerned about a localized pain in my back that simply won’t go away no matter what I seem to do. One hour later Dr. Barker has me off to St. Joe’s for X-rays and blood and urine tests. No problem – all that and I am back home just over two hours after leaving the house! Didn’t even miss my lunch. But hang on folks, it doesn’t end there – just after 3 p.m. the phone rings and it is Nicole from the clinic to report that all the results from the X-rays and tests are back and they wanted me to know that everything is fine. So basically five hours from beginning to end. Are you kidding me? Fantastic. Everyone I encountered at the clinic and at St. Joe’s X-ray department and the lab were courteous, efficient, caring and friendly – professionals all of them. Thanks to all of you – you guys are great. Thanks Dr. B.
