I'm sick of doctors.
I got angry with my doctor of ten years last year, because he kept pushing me off on his partner for appointments. The partner would refuse to listen to my thyroid symptoms. He'd run the very basic panel on me which always showed normal in his opinion. When my legs started swelling from thyroid edema he just gave me a water pill and didn't run any tests.
I decided to go for second opinion. I went to another doctor in a different town. I talked about
my problems, how I was feeling, and showed him my legs (which looked like they were going to explode that day).
The new doctor was so attentive and ran many tests. He found my Hypothyroidism. I decided to make him my new doctor. I was thrilled.
Now, I'm frustrated again.
The new doctor is so popular I can't get appointments to see him, his two nurses, or his PA.
To make matters worse he doesn't book appointments more than a month ahead. They say it's because of his unpredictable schedule. Should his schedule affect his staff?
I'm just tired of doctors.
