(Reminded me of the boss on "Office Space")
So yesterday I arrive at 9:30 for my 9:45 appointment. I'm usually early for everything, plus I wasn't sure how traffic would be, so I signed in, the girl behind the front desk was a lot nicer than usual which was refreshing. Then I took a seat. I waited probably a good half hour before hearing my "name" (She-uh) being called. The girl (who of course was a girl I hadn't seen before) was VERY nice and VERY apologetic for the long wait. I almost felt like they had seen my previous blog post and were making up for it. Everyone was being so nice! She complimented my outfit, asked if I wanted a coffee, got me a bottle of water, asked if I wanted to surf around on their iPad... Was I at the right place? I definitely wasn't used to this. She then tells me the doctor should be in soon. While I'm waiting, the door to the room is open and I can hear all the nurses talking. I can hear them saying how behind they are and a bunch of other things that I really have no business or interest hearing. The minutes tick by. What I assume to be a manager of some sort comes in "Hiiiiiiii. Sorry for the wait, the doctor should be right in". Ok. So I sit.... and sit... and sit. Finally, an hour after my appointment time the doctor comes in and no, if you were wondering it's NOT the doctor that I saw two days prior who said HE wanted to see me back on Wednesday, but of course, a doctor that I had spent no time with prior. She spent a minute or two looking at my eyes, told me they looked good and sent me on my way, but not before squeezing an extra $25 out of me for a new set of drops. I walked out excited, excited to be through with driving out here every other day and excited to stop being that nameless faceless patient.
Again, I want to reiterate, the surgery itself was just as explained to me, Dr.Lusby was great and I am very happy with my vision. Its just that, the center itself could use a little work. My friend Nick got the same surgery with the same surgeon but at the Fullerton office and says he had a good experience so, for those interested, there's a note to take from this.
I got the e-mail today including my post-surgery photo. The best part.... It's BLURRY! The first photo of me with CLEAR vision is BLURRY. That just about sums everything up right there...
