I like the new guys

As I age and have to go to more and more doctors for stupid accidents or sore feet, I tend to be more inclined to make an appointment with the "new guy". Not been offered choices with "new gals" but I would certainly pick them as well. My two new guys are both my kids ages 38-40 or younger (36). They are such eye candy for this old folk and they have actual personalities. I tend to engender conversations that both never thought they would have with a patient. I am like that. As you all know I like to ask questions so 1. I get to know about them and 2. they get to really know me. I want someone who is going to operate on me to understand me and like me and want to engage in conversation. I want them to know I care that they do a good job and that I am familiar with medical options and do my research. I don't trust blindly and I don't believe they are god (hard to do when I don't believe in god, anyway). Also, picking the new guy allows them to have time to take with me as they are not as busy yet and then when they do get busy they recognize that your trusted them and referred people to them and they respect that you weren't afraid to go to the new guy. I called them the new guy until they aren't anymore. They are more highly trained and up on all the latest and greatest and they show their compassion and they actually sit and talk to you and they hate when they run late. Most have had experience with the doctors who are always behind and they know how aggravating it is. They tend to have young kids and want to leave earlier but also come in earlier to work. They value their families. SO the next time you get to pick go with the new guy or gal, the one who just started in an older practice or on their own. I know you won't be disappointed. Referrals in Los Angeles if needed.
