McKenzie texted me this morning saying she had an abscess that was getting larger and more painful. We made an appointment for 2 pm today.
She arrived a few minutes before 2 and was immediately escorted back to the exam room. I had the abscess drained, and she was on her way by 2:15. No rushing her through. In fact I enjoy myself when I get to drain abscesses. (I know people think I’m pretty crazy to like that, but I just grin.) She was happy to be done and on her way in just a few minutes.
I love being able to provide that kind of service in my unique DPC (Direct Primary Care) medical practice. Since McKenzie pays a monthly membership, all office visits are included. So the abscess visit didn’t cost her anything extra at all.
