So, after about 6 weeks of calling, 1 ER visit, and 1 visit to his office, I have decided to fire my doc. I called leaving messages explaining I was having bleeding and pain, was told that he didn't have any openings coming up and that I would just have to go to the hospital. So, I did, and I was glad to get some desperately needed relief.
Well, I started having issues again this week, so I made a trip to his office. Completely pointless. He was on vacation for 2 weeks! And his nurse told me there wasn't much they could do. I wouldn't be able to get in to see him until he got back... which was when my already-scheduled appointment was. Errr! So, I went to a nearby urgent care, and they helped me a lot. The doc arranged for me to see a new GI closer to where I live, and after consulting w/him, he already has a game plan for me! At least I feel like someone will be there for me if I need them, I mean, that's what doctors are for, right?? Anyway, I guess I'm done venting. :) Hope you all have better luck than I have had!
