Is there a doctor in the house?

Here is my latest experience with health care:

I made an appointment with a doctor (new group practice). I was told I would be scheduled with somebody by a different name. I asked if that was someone else in the same group, and was told yes. When I got there, I was briefly examined by a PA (that's physician's assistant). Her name was the one that was said in the phone call. She drew blood for labs. Then, she said to make an appointment for a physical exam, and sent me up front to pay for my visit. I never saw a doctor.

We are in big trouble...
