No – sorry to say I didn't. I was so focused on my own questions that I forgot. I missed a great opportunity and realized it after the doctor left the room. I have failed to do take opportunities like this before too. I get so focused on hearing and understanding that I forget.
Forgetting things and distractions are common on a doctor visit. I had written all my issues down and showed it to the triage nurse. She took the paper to give to the doctor. Because of COVID protocols the doctor called from a different room to do the discussion and came into the exam room to do the 5-minute physical exam. Then left the room again and re-conneted on the phone. I was thrown off by the COVID procedure. And this was a new doctor for me because my old doctor had retired.
