A visit to the doctor’s office

 

I didn’t feel well this morning so I called my doctor’s office. I was lucky to get an appointment this afternoon at 4:40. It is the beginning of the year so when I arrived at the office, I had to fill out new insurance paperwork and a health history form to update my information.

 

When I turned in the paperwork the receptionist asked for my $20.00 co-pay. My co-pay is the part of the bill that I have to pay. Insurance pays the rest. It was late in the day and the office was behind schedule so I had to wait 45 minutes. Finally, the nurse called my name and took me back to an examination room.

 

On the way she weighed me and measured my height. I hate being weighed with my shoes on because it adds at least 3 extra pounds. When we got to the examination room she took my vital signs including my temperature and blood pressure. She asked me what was wrong with me today and then I waited until the doctor came in.

 

After looking me over and asking a few questions, the doctor’s diagnosis was that I had a sinus infection. He wrote me out a prescription for antibiotics and had his nurse e-mail it to the drug store. I picked up my medicine on the way home and already I am feeling better.

 

Uma visita ao consultório médico

 

Eu não estava me sentindo bem essa manhã então eu liguei para o consultório médico. Eu tive sorte de conseguir uma consulta de tarde às 16:40. É início de ano então quando cheguei no consultório, tive que preencher uma nova documentação do seguro e um formulário de histórico de saúde para atualizar minhas informações.

 

Quando entreguei a documentação a recepcionista pediu o meu copagamento de $20 dólares. Meu copagamento é a parte da conta que preciso pagar. O seguro paga o resto. Já era tarde e o consultório estava com a agenda atrasada então eu tive que esperar 45 minutos. Finalmente, a enfermeira chamou meu nome e me levou para a sala de examinação.

 

No caminho ela me pesou e mediu minha altura. Eu odeio ser pesada com meus sapatos porque eles adicionam 1,3kg. Quando chegamos na sala de examinação ela mediu meus sinais vitais incluindo minha pressão. Ela me perguntou o que havia de errado hoje e então eu esperei até o médico me chamar.

 

Depois de me examinar e fazer algumas perguntas, o diagnóstico do médico foi que eu tinha sinusite. Ele me escreveu uma receita para antibióticos e pediu para a enfermeira enviar por email para a farmácia. Eu peguei meu medicamento no caminho para casa e já estou me sentindo melhor.
