So, I contacted a doctor about
getting a colonoscopy.
This was going to happen early last year, then covid happened.
They told me I needed to get another referral as mine was over a year old.
Okay, well my old Onco was the one that referred me last year.
So I figured since my Oncos are the ONLY doctors that have inquired of me if I wanted or had had a colonoscopy, I'd ask my current Onco.
Me to current Onco office: I'd like a referral for a C.
Nurse: You will have to get that referral from your PCP.
Me: Okay says I. (but inside I'm growling)
Me to PCP nurse: I'd like a referral for a C.
Nurse: Oh you'll have to have a physical first. (money grubbing SOBs)
Me: No, I don't need a physical, my Onco keeps tabs on me four times a year.
Nurse: No sir, you must have a physical before we will refer you.
Me: forget it, goodbye.
Me to the Onco nurse: Well, I guess I'm not getting a C. My PCP has never even asked about
a C for me, only my two Oncos. Which means Dr P has. Goodbye.
Onco Nurse: Well, we'll do it this time, but you need to see your PCP for blood pressure and cholesterol checks.
NOTE: Who said ANYTHING about
blood pressure and cholesterol.
