Why is it . . .  
That every time you go to the doctor, they give you a brand-new patient information form to fill out, rather than giving you a printout or copy of the previous one with instructions to make any changes necessary?

Actually, I suspect the reason is that most people, if given a copy and told to make changes, would not read carefully. But it's still annoying.

My dentist hands back the old form on subsequent appointments, with a series of little boxes on the back for me to initial and date each time, saying I've reviewed it and made any necessary changes.

They want a new form every few years, though.
