I am retired. My experience with Doctors and I am sorry to say Nurses,has been extremely frustrating at times. As I have aged so has my exposure to the patient side of things. My Internist and her Nurse are great. I hate being called "honey". I dislike being talked over, interrupted, feel like I'm talking to the wall, worst of all....that blank look that conveys "what could you know your older and retired". I use clinical terms, keep it brief, and do not expect miracles. I have an email with my user name....a little humor goes a long way!!!
