New patient paperwork fun…

As I am sure a lot of you can sympathize with…I absolutely despise new patient paperwork. I can’t tell you how many times I have filled these stupid things out; it always takes me forever and completely wears out my right hand/arm. Not to mention, there’s nothing like have to go through pages of check boxes and mark everything that’s wrong with you to make a girl feel like she’s dying or something. I don’t have the energy to count, but I’m pretty sure I checked more “yes” boxes than “no” boxes this time around. :/ 

Note: I marked “yes” for more lyme disease symptoms today than I did before starting treatment…isn’t that lovely. Image

 

And this isn’t even including the other 6 pages of biographical info and ridiculous amounts of family history I just filled out (I mean, who seriously knows all of the medical problems their grandparents have/had?!) 

And don’t even get me started on the medication list!! Mine takes a whole sheet of paper, front and back now! 

At least this doctor’s office is thorough…let’s hope they are that thorough when it comes to running diagnostic tests!
