New Patient paperwork 

I’m trying out an internist, which is different from a GP or PCP, and so I have another set of new patient paperwork to fill out. An internist is possibly more beneficial for me because of my high levels of comorbidity. Most of my medical history, medicines, and stuff, are actually already typed out into 6 pages. It’s formatted and organized. That means I don’t have to write out some stuff on new paperwork. More often though, I need it because there’s not enough room on the doctor’s paperwork. It’s also helpful because my hands will sometimes start to jerk involuntarily if I’m doing a lot of hand writing where I have to keep within specific formatting, like filling in blank lines. 

Side note: it’s interesting to see which doctors prioritize which diseases in past medical history. This doctor has AID/HIV (yes it’s a typo) but doesn’t have MS.  

So yea, this is my fun times so far today.
