What to do when your doctor doesn't listen to you.
"What a boob!" by January L'Angelle

My new primary doctor insisted I get a mammogram. I questioned him and said, “Don’t you have my chart saying I had a double mastectomy?” He replied, “Oh, sorry.” Several weeks later, he mailed a scheduled appointment for a mammogram.

After several failed attempts to cancel, having another appointment the same day, I decided to go to that appointment too. I got there, said nothing, undressed, and stepped to the mammogram machine. The technician’s chin almost hit the floor.

I smirked and said, “Go ahead, squash whatever boob you can find.” We both laughed. Subsequently, I found another primary doctor.
