I initially went in to have my foot orthotics replaced, and that went off without a hitch. But of course the required paperwork had to be filled out and I was happy to list all of the vitamins, supplements and foods I eat, including how often I exercise and my lifestyle. I don't drink. I don't smoke. The list of health products I use is thorough and I'm vigilant about taking care of myself. It was when I got my blood taken that both the nurse and the doctor went all Nurse Ratchet on me. The first red flag went up when I followed a nurse into the room BECAUSE SHE SAID, "FOLLOW ME." Then she turns right around and goes into another room and then cackles at me like I was an idiot for going into the first room. Clear communication, people. Then when the doctor came into see me, she immediately begins to bang the drum about how 100% certain she is that I'm going to get diabetes. I wanted to laugh in her face. This lady was EASILY 35 pounds overweight and it's obvious she wanted to get me on some kind of prescription medication, even though I am in good health despite my bad knees and feet. Maybe she should have taken her own advice and checked her own blood sugar instead of lecturing me on insulin intake. I just have a problem with overweight doctors giving me advice on better living. I'm not making this up. Why would I? My sense of the Saginaw VA is that none, if very few, of the medical practitioners there never served in the military or at least never in a forward area. The respect factor (or just being PLEASANT) is a low priority and they have a habit of infantilizing the patients.
