After an incredible trip to Australia and New Zealand – I had been suffering from a prolonged “cold” and stuffed up nose for a few weeks, really since March. I visited my local doctor, who had prescribed steroids. I took the drugs, and they didn’t work.
I poked around, found a friend who is a doctor and he suggested an ENT (ear nose and throat doctor) way across town. This doctor, who shall go nameless at this point enters the room, spends approximately 3 minutes typing on her computer, 1 minute looking at me and promptly prescribed steroids. I object, her response “these are better drugs”..
“Thanks, that will be $400 please for my 4 minutes of time”. Again, I dutifully took the prescription. She says “Call me back in two months”. Thanks. Nothing changes.
