I Went in for lab work and happened to mention that I had a rash. The nurse told me to wait and she’d see if Dr Lester would see me. He took time to see me and prescribe meds. It was shingles and I’m very thankful to have gotten started on the meds. Can’t imagine how much worse I’d be feeling if I hadn’t been seen!
