Turns out that the appointment I had today was only the pre-pre-pre op.
Today's pre-op was with my Doctor, who hooked me up to the EKG, told me I was having a heart attack, and then let me go.
Monday, I have a pre-op with the surgeon, a blood test, and a chest xray.
Wednesday, I have a pre-op with the pre-op nurse to... ok, I don't know. I can't imagine what else can pre-op the op.
I get that preparation is key to a successful procedure and all that but can't there be one pre-op appointment, in one place, that takes care of everything?
Yep, this is much more efficient than a single-payer, government run, healthcare system. NOT.
