Annual Physical Today
Type of doctor: Internal medicine. The intellectuals of the medical world. Surgeons, on the other hand, are fighter pilots.
Preparation: The sort of list you might have when taking an old truck to a mechanic.
Amount of time needed: Enough. I once dropped a doctor who rushed through physicals. If I'm going to have an exam, it should be a real exam. My current doctor gives plenty of time.
Office environment: Could they make it more inviting? How about some music in the lobby? A few paintings on the wall?
Process I still need to get used to: Doctors entering info on a computer during exams. I hope they type better than they write.
Most feared medical equipment: No contest. The scale.
