FB STATUS

Repeating my Facebook status for today:


So. My doctor's appointment for post-op was set for today at 5:15. Not fond of that late of appointment in Hagerstown... but ya gotta do what ya gotta do. So yesterday they call me and ask me if I can come in at 4:00 instead. Sure. We rearrange our lives to drive the hour and fifteen minutes to be there an hour and fifteen minutes earlier only to walk into an office filled with approximately twenty five waiting patients. ??? "We are running behind" the receptionist tells me. Like. 1 1/2 to 2 hours behind? And I was asked to come in over an hour early because..... ?? I fill out and return my paper work, walk away, then walk out the door... never to return again. Who needs it! Dear God, please keep me healthy so I do not have to frequent doctor's offices = This, my daily prayer

That is all.

Been there, done that, more than once. Simply not worth the hassle. I hope you find a new Dr.

Oh geesh! That would not sit well with me. But I remember working in doctors' offices and we would reschedule things like this thinking it should work and then sure enough there would be an emergency or something else to throw everything off and we ended up a lot of times with "egg on our faces" with people waiting a long time. When I took the kids to the pediatrician, I always wanted the first appointment of the day if at all possible.

Oh dear, that's a bummer! I always go early for appointments, JUST IN CASE:) More times than not, I just have to wait a little longer! Hope all is well and that you don't have to go back:) HUGS!
