Going to the vet--

Called in to set up a doctor's appointment for next week--I've had a few minor aches and pains lately, but mostly, I haven't been to the doctor's for a checkup since I was eight or so.

I got it in my head that I'd try to find a doctor using the gay and lesbian yellow pages--not that this is a major issue, but it's good to reward people that support our community.

Weirdly, and tellingly, there were very few general practitioners in that directory. Most of them were either gynecologists, or plastic surgeons, or spas. This says something about priorities, I think.

Although, looking through the service providers recommended by my insurance company, it seems the "general practitioner" is a bit of a dying breed.

Yeah I think now most of them are specialists. Generally though the doctors I've seen so far have been pretty well versed. Which is a little surprising. lol So I guess specialists can be good at more than one thing =)

Wow, I remember Dr. Arnecilla! I went to her... gosh, years ago. Sweetheart.

I go to Dr. Richard Wiseman. Very good doctor. Bit north of you, though; he's up by my (soon-to-be-old) apartment.

Dunno if he's in the gay yellowpages. Never really thought to ask. He's just a very good GP.
