You know you’ve been to the dr’s office too many times, when…

1. Everyone knows you by name even before you sign in (Hey that sounds like Cheers)
2. Your chart is so large they have it broken up into 10 others. The doctor gets the most recent and then asks for the older chart so he can look up some test you took only 6 months ago
3. You’ve read every old raggedy magazine in the waiting room and the exam rooms
4. You know all the medical diagrams on the walls by heart
5. The office staff asks you when you’re going to Disney next
6. You don’t write a check at the end of your visit (too many bills crossing in the mail)
7. Your prescriptions are pre-written so the doctor just signs them as you leave
8. The office staff and the doctor know your entire family and expect photos of your children after big events
9. One of the most expensive Christmas gift categories is all of your doctors’ offices
10. When you call you don’t have to say your name
11. When you’re scheduled for a procedure, test or exam the nurse knows what your likes/dislikes are and has everything ready in advance
12. If you miss an appointment they call you to see if you’re OK and don’t ever send missed appointment bills
