But you have to admit there’s some truth to the following:
Medical professionals, on the phone: I’m going to need some information from you before your appointment, just going to ask you some questions.
Same medical professional on the same call: I’m going to send you a link to some paperwork, where you’ll answer the same questions you just answered, but online this time.
Same medical professional, the following day: here’s a clipboard with the same questions you answered yesterday, we’ll need this before you’re seen.
Same medical professional, in a smaller room: I’m going to ask you some questions. They may seem familiar.
Different medical professional, in yet another room: Let’s just go over a few questions. I see your answers here, but I want to hear them from you.
Different medical professional as you’re leaving: See you in a few weeks. We may call you with some questions. In the meantime, please check your email for a questionnaire.
Happy Monday. May your week contain minimal medical paperwork!
