The doctor recommended a pneumonia shot, and after waiting 15 minutes, the nurse came back in to clean the room at which time I told her I was waiting for the shot. Five minutes later, she came back in to give me the shot. The doctor usually requests a mammogram for me, which was not done. I wrote a note in My Chart asking for the referral, which I did get. But only because I had called radiology, and not because my chart notified me. once the blood work is done, unless those numbers have changed dramatically, or if I have new issues, I wonder if an in-person visit is warranted. Of course it's always good to see your primary face-to-face at least once a year.
