Health providers on this side of town...

I thought I would be a team player when looking for a primary care physician (PCP), and pick a doctor that was "in the community", meaning party of the Filipino community. I went with Dr. Lansangan who has been my PCP for the last two years. I always wait until there are a few things wrong with me before I see her, so that I can maximize every visit. And after every visit, I leave with the feeling of this was a "good, but not great" visit. This time however, was horrible. In short, the waiting in the lobby is long, the waiting in the patients room is long, and I could have given myself the same evaluation that she gave me. The doc herself is really nice and polite, but the analysis and the whole waiting game was infuriating. On top of that, you have to pay for your time there in terms of parking fees.

On a happier note, I would totally recommend Blackstone Optometry for anyone looking for an optometrist to go to. Dr. Cheng is a really nice guy, they have a ton of hip frames there, and they are uber punctual.

On a totally different tangent, after I went to the doc's office, I headed to the bank and dropped my prescription on the floor. And I think this guy picked it up, followed me all the way to the teller line, and politely gave it back to me. If it is this fellow below, then I will make a conscious effort to stop making fun of him and his movies.
