Found an email inviting me to "Check-in online and save time!"
Was it a belated note from Delta Airlines from my trip last week? No, it was from the orthopedic clinic, for my appointment. "Why pre-register?" it asked, and replied that it would save time and give me more time to talk about my health. (Not sure how that's going to work -- are they going to give me ten more minutes with the actual healthcare provider because I've obediently done my paperwork online?)
But I figured what the heck, and proceeded to check in.
That got me to a slew of pages where I got to verify that everything I had told them two weeks ago was still true. No, I still am not allergic to chicken. Yes, I still use the Kroger pharmacy. Etc.
But look at all the time I'm saving, doing it at home instead of in the office.
So tell me, why do I still have to arrive 15 minutes before my appointment time????
