Weirdly enjoyed the visit. Not the hours of waiting of course, but the consultation itself. The neurologist (who I first noted when I arrived was asking the receptionist questions on what to do, and thus I thought she was a trainee administration staff) was young as hell –probably my age, and like me, also looks much younger. Now most would see having a trainee consultant as a bad thing, but let me tell ya, it has it’s perks. For starters, being fresh out of college they are eager to please and still have that
dooey-eyed look in their eyes and dreams of saving the world, one patient at a time. They’re also generally more read-up on conditions than their older peers.
