IF you are of the MALE gender, STOP and read NO further. This is women's territory :)
Now that I've gotten rid of the pesky men, I can tell you about today's yearly boob squashing. I was a bit concerned since I was SO unhappy with my new doc and she was the one that put in the referral to the imaging center. BUT when I arrived, my fears disappeared. There was a separate entrance for the Women's Center, the tv was tuned to the Food Channel (where decadent chocolate desserts were being made) and coffee/juices and snacks were available. I was called back ON TIME (such a joy after the almost 90 min wait at the doc's office).
Then I was led to a dressing room where I had a locker for my clothing/purse as well as being given the softest pastel green robe to wear. I proceeded across the hall to a waiting room that was more like a living room (with another tv and more snacks/drinks) but instantly the tech was ready for me.
I (like most other women) ignored the "no deodorant" instruction (and the tech admitted she does NOT expect a woman to not wear deodorant when she has a late afternoon appt). She had baby wipes to wipe off residue and then they had spray Secret in the dressing room so I didn't stink the remainder of the day. It was quick and easy; they even handed me an appt slip for next year so I don't even have to think about it (drats, I do need to make sure my PCM puts in the referral or insurance won't cover it).
And since Starbucks was next door; I had a treat for the drive home.
imagine this robe with no Helly Kitty and it was soft, really soft.
