yesterday was my first appt with a new MD here in PR. he went to med school in the states and works for a well-known hospital here. he had no idea what my labs meant - i brought the last 3 i'd had and had marked ALT, AST, etc plus it shows when something is not WNL. he asked how long i'd had cirrhosis and HIV. he wouldn't make copies of the labs to have as background. my 3 minute physical, was BP check, listen to lungs and look at my eyes. as soon as i got home i called the insurance company to find a new internist. i just wondered if others have encountered this level of ignorance. i know some people have had some dumba$$ MDs, but this just blew my mind.
