Wow beggars belief. ĢI had a doctor's appointment on the 7th of this month. I am going to a different doctor because my doctor is not practicing now or may no longer at all. The entire building is closed no other doctors to see. So I saw this new doctor for the 1st time 3 days ago in Blue Spgs, Mo. It is about a 20-25 minute drive. Something occurred that never happened before. There were 2 questions to answer on a paper. 1. Do you have little interest or pleasure in doing things? My answer not at all. 2. Feeling down, depressed, or hopeless? My answer not at all. There were no questions on the paper about falling yet in her notes on my health
portal it had questions that was never answered by me such as 1.No fall risk factors, and 2. No falls in the last year. During the almost 8 years of seeing my last doctor these questions were never asked. I called and asked the office why these questions were on my visit notes on my health portal, and she said they are required to ask them. So this is something new they are doing. One time the pharmacy I go to which is Walmart the pharmacist actually told me he was on a pill that gave him suicidal thoughts. I was really surprised that he confided in me about that.
