On Thursday, I finally received the news that my biopsy was "normal." However, it came in the form of a folded over pink postcard that read "We are pleased to inform you that your recent pap smear was normal." (bold is mine) Of course, I didn't have a pap smear, I had an endometrial biopsy. Couldn't someone take the 10 seconds to cross off pap smear and write in endometrial biopsy? Attention physicians: this type of minor effort is important to your patients and while we know you didn't send the card we do hold you responsible for the contents. I'm going to take the card with me when I see my gyn-onc in 5 months and point out the obvious.
