First order of business, happy Thursday!
Second order of business, let’s talk about the Gynecologist!
Even though there are literally tens of guys who read my blog, this is a post geared toward the ladies. Sorry fellas.
Since this is a health and wellness blog, I feel I should cover more than just diet and exercise on occasion. And since the vast majority of readers are women, I’d like to take this opportunity to remind everyone about the importance of the annual trip to the gyno. I had mine yesterday. It’s not the most fun activity one can imagine, but it is a necessary and integral part to staying healthy. Even if you have the nicest gynecologist in the world (which I do) the annual visit can still be an experience one wishes to avoid.
And now a witty moment with everyone’s favorite OB/GYN, Cliff Huxtable:
I love that show
And on that note, I’m just going to jump right into today’s countdown (because I think the title pretty much speaks for itself)
Top 8 Things I Would Change About The Annual Visit To The Gynecologist If I Was In Charge Of Such Things
8. Have a TV on the wall across from the examination chair. It would be nice to have a little distraction for my eyes. Personally, I never know where to look.
7. Perhaps offer a blow dry bar in the same place. Two birds, one stone. Just saying.
6. Always have the office located between a Starbucks and a Froyo place. Because I always want one on my way in and the other on my way out.
5. Letter size pamphlets, instead of legal size. Rather than those pamphlets about “Your Uturus And U” that are always so tall they stick out of your purse, maybe just give me a post-it with the name of the website where I can find all this information.
4. Make-up consultation. Because I could really use one. And if I’m already sitting there in the waiting room, looking at my face in the self-view camera on my iphone out of boredom, it seems like a good time for one.
3. In-office tailor. Since you have to disrobe anyways, if they had a tailor on hand who could maybe fix that hem while you’re having your exam, that would be stellar.
2. Built-in ultra speedy lab that only does pap and blood tests for that particular office. Like a good dry cleaner, you never have to wait longer than 8 hours for results. You come in the morning, and they’ll have something for you by the time you’re done with work.
1. Snacks. I think some refreshments would go a long way in making the experience a little more enjoyable.
Oh Cliff Huxtable
Do you mind going to the doctor, or do you tend to put it off?
What’s your least favorite part about going?
Any other ideas to add to the list?
