I gave up on the dental clinic where they never answer the phone. Instead I found a clinic run by the the state department of public health.
The building it's in is located wayyy out in a nearby town. It used to be a turberculosis sanitarium, which is why it's out in the country. Now it's a long term care facility and has dental and vision clinics. They have no ER.
Anyways, the place is just lovely in that old historical kind of way. You look out the window and you can see the old nursing school, which is vacant now. Just imagine the stories that building could tell.
The staff is so nice and they charge sliding scale.
They even have current magazines neatly arranged in the waiting room.
Now here's the weird part. Despite all this appeal, I have never seen another patient.
There are employees bustling around and the cafeteria is busy, but I have never seen another patient. I always have a hard time getting an appointment and the phones are always ringing, but a live person? Nope.
I even mentioned this to the dentist, she laughed and assured me they have them.
Is this a Twilight Zone episode waiting to happen?
