When I tried to make the appointment I was given the "rules" - I had to call one week prior to confirm my appointment or it would be given away. No make up or nail polish - I was okay with that. And don't be late - the doctor won't see late patients.
Okay... I mentioned that this sounded a little strident. The woman on the phone said the doctor is very matter of fact, if I'm looking for a friendly conversation I'm not going to get it and since I'm already negative about this visit maybe I should find a different doctor. Wow. That's what I'm going to do, though, find a different doctor.
