Medical expense is not cheap now.You’re lucky if you are covered by an insurance, or your company reimburse your
medical bills. Not in my case.
I went to Prima Medika Hospital in Denpasar to check my condition this morning. I have this sore throat that feels unusual, something just feels wrong. And I also have this swollen glands since several months under my left jaw I’m always afraid to check it out. Dr Arista is a young female general practitioner, she’s very nice & friendly and was so attentive to my complaints & worries, and gave me all the suggestions for a better health. She said I should avoid these following, for the next couple of weeks :
- Fried food (including my favorite Nasi Goreng-fried rice from the street vendor that re-uses oil for maybe more than 20 times!)
- Cold drinks
I could definitely skip the first one, but how could I not drink my mango juice, Coca Cola Zero with lots of ice cubes, and last but least : ice cream-my comforter!
Anyway when I told Dr Arista the kind of medicine I’m alergic with as per instruction from my parents that are both doctors, also I mentionned that Dr Arya-the senior medical doctor/Director of Marketing of Prima Medika is my friend as well as his wife, then suddenly she removed the doctor fee from my bills! How amazing is that! I only had to pay the medicine.
Another magic word to reduce your medical cost : doctor’s daughter; doctor’s friend; doctor’s wife friend…huahaha…:p Which one is yours?
