I just got dumped by my doctor! (RANT)
DH and I have only been in our area a couple of years and never really established a regular doctor. A good friend suggested hers, whom she has been seeing since she was a kid. She said the office is really friendly and they are pretty understand about us mom's with railroad husbands that are always gone and have weird schedules.
I've seen him twice and wasn't exactly impressed. When I got sick he spent a whole 2 minutes with me and didn't listen to my lungs even though I have asthma as said I was having pain in my lungs like I had pneumonia. Just in, out, here's a prescription for Zithromax....buh bye!
Well, I have this weird rash that pops up now and again on my hand. It's about the size of a quarter and it itches. After about a week it usually goes away. I don't know why it crops up now and again, it just does. Well a couple of weeks ago it cropped up only 10 times worse than it ever has before. I won't describe it but it was very very painful and it looked like I had some flesh eating fungus or something. I called to get an appointment. The scheduler asked if she could call me back. She never did. I called the next day, she asked if she could call me back, she didn't. I called her that afternoon and she said that she wasn't sure she could schedule me because I had a no show April 19. I told her she must have had me mixed up with someone because I didn't have an appointment then, and wouldn't have made one because I was in CA for a vacation that had been scheduled and planned 6 months before. She didn't believe me and kept complaining at me for a no show.
FINALLY she says she can get me in, in 4 days!!! WTH. Later that night the pain is so bad I can't bare it, so I went to urgent care, they gave me some cream and it went away. Something about contact allergic dermatitis so I'm thinking something at the stable or in the yard. I get home, I call and let my doctors office know I went to urgent care and cancel the appointment.
Today I get a registered letter from my doctors office dumping both me AND DH because of their appointment cancellation policy!!!!!
Fine, I don't need him anyway!!!! But still, the nerve of them! I know they have the right, but to dump a whole family because of a no show that didn't happen and 1 appointment cancellation??? That's just ******ed.
