At the doctor's office

I am ready to admit that I would not venture into any doctor's office if it is the first time that I am visiting said office.  Why?  Well, here are my reasons.

I need to learn my way there.  I need to familiarize with the layout of the office.  I need to get to know the secretaries and doctors.  I need to let them know that I am blind and require assistance to negotiate the office.

This is the formula that has always worked for me.  I always find that it is best not to surprise staff and doctors alike for the first time whenever I go in for a visit.  True it is that most people are now much more aware as to how to interact with someone who is blind but I do not take any chances.

Not every doctor would be like my family physician, Dani Manis.  Or my dentist, Gordon Yaser.  Or my ENT specialist, Everton Gooden or my Gynaecologist, Nathan Roth.

I'm Donna J. Jodhan, your friendly accessibility advocate, wishing you a terrific day.
