I say give the nurses a chance. There are so many Doctors here in town who restrict their patient loads and then turn around and stab them in the back with bills that are horrendous. We need qualified nurses to take the load no matter where in El Paso you go. Nurses sometimes know the patients more than the doctors and interact with them a lot more.

Well, that's certainly true in my case. I hardly ever get to see my doctor and when I do, I can't get in a word wedgewise because he's in and out so fast. On the other hand, the nurse has fondled my gonads looking for cancer, examined my wang looking for herpes and stuck her finger up my butt looking for polyps. She knows me inside and out, so to speak.

You know, we'd have plenty of money for doctors if not for that GM fiasco. After all this time, they still haven't paid us back and all we have is some under-performing stock to show for it.

I'm curious as to how much an office visit is for you. It might be cheaper for me to go that way as opposed to paying for a massage with a happy ending.
