I would be glad if the doctor's office read their own internal paperwork.  (1) have to tell the receptionist why I want the appointment. (2) have to tell the recetionist whay I'm there.  (3) have to tell the nurse why I'm there.  (4) have to tell the Doctor why I'm there.

Even worse if you go to an ER, then it's a many as 5-6 people that you have to retell the same info to.  

And each one of them faithfully writes it down on their "form" which, apparently", never gets read by anyone.

Because, I also have to tell the insurance company that "No, I wasn't in an accident, my back just went out on me.  Again..."
