A few months ago my clinic started requiring that they give each patient a visit summary (beginning with the first visit ever made there) at each visit. This seems like a waste of paper to me. If you give 5 days in a row, you receive the same thing. They didn't give me one when I went for lab work Monday. I received one in the mail today, which I just shredded.
Does anyone else receive one? I'm wondering if it has something to do with the new health care law? I asked the chemo nurses and they had no idea. Many patients feel as I do that what' the purpose (unless I suppose someone requested one). That much paper and ink is VERY costly.
