That's funny......the docs here may have your medical info in front of them.....but they absolutely don't look at it until you're there and specify what your problem is. Even then, I've been asked to provide info (that they have in my records) over again, cause they just haven't the time to look.

Docs take on tooooo many patients...they're rushed....up to 50 patients or more per day.
There's signs on the walls in most docs exam rooms here that say: one issue per visit.
You might get 10 mins max...then it's a rush to get you out....no exceptions...and too bad if you've got another concern or not....make another appt and wait...again.

I doubt very much that ANY of us will live to be as old as our grandparents or parents do/did

If you look at actuarial tables, you are very wrong

In my case:

Welllll! Paternal Grandmother died at less than 50 (I think mid 40s) Maternal Grandfather in his late 50s

Paternal Grandfather in his 80s and Maternal Grandmother 102

Dad died in 70s and mom was 90

I'm in my 70s. I hope to pass my Dad and Grandfather, my Mom and Grandmother will be a stretch

But, none of this has anything to do with Docs and computers. Why do so many threads go off topic?

Because people have beloved agendas they insist on bringing up at every opportunity.

I'm planning on printing out a copy of the article and sending it to that overly-computer-focused doctor of mine.

Sure, your doctor doesn't need to document anything about your visit anyway, right?

Did you even bother to read the article yourself or just the title???

If you had read the article you would understand there would be no point in sending it on to your "overly computer focused doctor" of yours since the article explains how this has come to be and why it isn't the fault of the doctor....

Was this your attempt at sarcasm? You don't need print it and waste your own ink. Save a tree. Email the link! If he's so computer-focused he might even read it that way.

Holy cow. ! I can't imagine . .your side pain might be due to some other major issue. Example::I had a leg pain. Doc sent me to get tested. It was a blood clot. One issue pain. Second issue my potential for a stroke. I cannot imagine a doc issuing such a mandate.

And sorry folks, if a doc is wasting your time by asking you to repeat your medical history. ..he /she is not the kind you want. Tell em to read it and stop the dress rehearsal.
