I really had a lot of hopes on my appt today but that was all crushed. The scheduling department screwed up and scheduled me with a doctor that does not handle "your kind of problems." Right now I don't know if I should cry or be really angry. When they tried to reschedule me (at an office 25miles from that one) I told them it was not necessary and I would be seeing another practice. I am a firm believer in excellent customer service and that just was not it. WE hire our doctors and have the full right to fire them if they, or their office, do not provide us the service we are paying for.
 
Hopefully I can get in quickly to another practice (the great thing about living in a major city is there are many many to chose from) quickly as I honestly don't think I can take this pain much longer. My meds just are not strong enough and I refuse to take them more often then I should.
 
Well, enough of me ranting. I just had to get it out of me before the crazies set in.
 
Take care,

To err is human, if such an incident happens just once (or more in larger practices), you shouldn't overreact by imediately going to another office, especially not if the first one was able to help you. Crying or being angry won't solve the problem but it might give you a better feeling, so please rant on about whatever it is you want to. If it helps getting your mind from the pain, do it, that's what we're here for.

Personally, I don't get my hopes up any more, so I can't get disappointed. It may seem unappealing, but this way of life often spares you a lot of pain. Take the day as it comes; is a mistake being made, then so it is; someone will fix it if you ask nicely.

Pain can really grind you down heh.

Hi Sarrah,

I have done the same thing as you a couple of times with specialists who were rude, thoughtless, and didn't give a darn about anything but the money. It's pretty easy to tell on the first appointment how the office is run and the whether or not the doctor is the right one for you. This is a team of people who you are entrusting your life to...they darn well better care....especially for the money they receive. It is helpful to have some competition around town. I feel sorry for those who are in very sparcely populated areas and have no choices.

Good luck and keep us posted,
Chutzie

Morgoth,

I am usually quite forgiving and easy going but the fact they let me sit in the office waiting and took my copy then told me "sorry" is entirely unexceptable. The nurse was extremely nice about everything (and so was I) but I won't go back. Plus I would have to drive 25miles out of my way just to get to the place the doctor they want me to see is at.

Oh well, time to makes some calls....

Well, I callled and got into a doctor I thought I was never going to get to see. He is a DO so hopefully will not look at me funny when I mention all the "natural" things I have tried. I see him tomorrow and am hoping it goes well. Well, I am off to google and research what the normal treatment approach is for people with my problem.

Take care,
Sarrah
