16 Nov 17 - 0921 ET - DOCTORS.

**YESTERDAY. Most of what I did yesterday was explained in yesterday's blog, 

so I'll need to type nothing else here.

**TODAY. I have a followup appointment to see Dr. Steiner at the Wooster Eye 

Center. He will check my right eye that he performed surgery on yesterday in 

removing a cataract and implanting a lens and a stent. My right vision was blurry

yesterday, but after a night's sleep, I have only a slight blurriness.

I HAVE SOMETHING ON MY MIND

**I've been to see doctors so much recently that that's all I HAVE ......... ON MY 

MIND. Something that gets me a little aggravated is that they use those  

highfalutin names for their profession. Can't the doctor's use laymen terms when 

speaking of what they do, like bone, skin doctor, eye doctor, heart doctor, cancer 

doctor and the list goes on and on to include specialty doctors, like a defibrillator

doctors. I have a defibrillator implanted in my right chest and I have a specialty 

doctor at the Cleveland Clinic, Main Campus. He is Dr. Bargava and monitors my 

defibrillator through Medtronic, the manufacturer, and they send that to Dr. 

Bargava and/or his technicians. 

I Goggled device doctor several times and the response was "Do you mean 

divested?" I Goggled defibrillator doctor and the response was Cardiologist. 

Another over impressive word for a heart doctor. I just believe that some 

doctors use these fancy dan names just to pretend there're better than us 

patients.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that doctors would be better doctors if they 

would use common names for what they do, like above, so we can understand 

and not an Ophthalmo .... whatever.
