Maybe it's Just Me......

....but I was miffed and astounded when requesting a physical for my son, necessary for a 5-hour autism evaluation by another specialized clinic, and the doctor’s scheduling nurse responded with….......

a) “Autism. That’s surprising to me but let me check my calendar…...”

b) “Autism? Oh, well, of course we’d be glad to provide a physical…...”

c) “Autism? No (expletive deleted) way does Dan-Dan have Autism. I’ve seen that kid myself, cute as can be, and there’s no freakin’ way…......”.

“C!” is the answer. I asked her if that was her professional opinion. It took me a little under two hours to switch Daniel’s care over to an Autism-aware pediatrician recommended by friends.
