2. We encounter a medical professional whose questioning is direct and with purpose. He exudes confidence and knowledge. This is a relief considering all the waiting rooms we've sat in these past eight months.
3. A surprise billing reminder arrives in the mail. It's due tomorrow! There's no way to make the drive to pay it in person, so we log onto their website, zip, zip transfer the funds, print a receipt, zip, it's paid! Think of the gas we saved! Oh how I love efficiency!
