I had stayed pretty much out of the Western medical system until I came down with several nasty, and seemingly unresolvable, infections back in June. Until then, aside from "maintenance" to manage my fibromyalgia, mostly alternative medicine, I had been the epitome of health. Eventually, my search for solutions brought me to the Alexandria Professional Center. As I write this, I still have no answers, but the events of just one day have provoked not only more questions with respect to my individual situation, but also concerning our health care in general, beginning with its increasing resort to the use of computers.
Stop One - was to pick up a photocopy of test results which I had been assured the day before would be waiting for me in an envelope at the front desk. They were not, and as the office computer system was down, there was no way to access them. Thank God it wasn't an emergency.
