Kaiser Permanente Online

I went to the doctor late yesterday afternoon to see about getting antibiotics for strep throat. Turns out doctors don't believe just believe you when you tell them what your ailment is(I even knew what medicaton I wanted), so I had my throat swabbed and I dropped my swab off at the lab for testing. This morning I logged on to the Kaiser Permanente website to see if they had my results, sure enough my tests result awaited and the verdict is "NEGATIVE FOR GROUP A STREP BY DNA PROBE". I'm fairly amazed at how efficient KP is and that they have this information waiting for me online the next morning. Oh, and I feel better than I did yesterday, so maybe I'm just run down from a very busy week last week.

I'm sorry to hear that you're not feeling good, I hope you get better soon!

Kaiser has improved tremendously in SF. My husband and I had some blood work done to test our cholesterol levels, and it was amazing to see all of the results online. Lots of people bag on Kaiser, but I've had a much better experience there compared to UCSF, where it took me 3 months to get an appointment for a physical! Kaiser lets you make regular appointments online which I love!

So how long until their servers are compromised and your DNA is held for ransom? Pay up or we'll clone you and literally steal your identity!
