971 - Getting in to See a Busy Doctor

February 7th, 2014

Episode 41 of 489 episodes

Try not to get sick when your doctor is busy. But if she is, then listen to this episode about what you should do. Slow dialog: 1:27 Explanations: 3:08 Fast dialog: 16:14 Monique: Ugh! Jurgen: What’s the matter? Monique: My GP referred me to a specialist for my back problems, but she doesn’t have any openings for eight weeks! I’m waitlisted in case there’s a cancellation, but if there isn’t one, I’ll have to endure this pain for at least another eight weeks. Jurgen: Can’t you just go see another specialist? Monique: I could, but my GP says that she’s the best in the business. In the meantime, I’ll try to see a physical therapist about my neck. It’s flaring up again. Jurgen: At least you’ll get some relief. Monique: Maybe. I have to call back tomorrow morning to see if she can fit me in. She’s really booked up, too. While I’m waiting, I guess I could try to see the podiatrist about my feet. Jurgen: You’re having feet problems, too? Monique: Yeah, my whole body is falling apart. I think I’m nearly past my expiration date! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
