I also love first thing in the morning appointments, because the doc is less likely to be behind. I totally understand why they get behind, though. Sometimes patients have a lot of questions, and I know I really appreciate it that my GI takes a lot of time to answer the questions I have...that's what I like best about
him. My GI was really apologetic the last time I went to see him because I had to wait 30-ish minutes! I told him that it was absolutely not a big deal.
That woman sounds seriously annoying. I bet she thinks nothing of it when she's running late, though, because she HAS to be the most important person in the world.
Symptoms began in November 2008, ~4 weeks after giving birth to my son.
Eased for ~3 weeks in December, possibly b/c of probiotic use?
Returned in January 2009 (with a vengeance), diagnosed with pancolitis on January 30.
Currently taking Asacol (400mg 4 pills 3x daily), Rowasa nightly, Culturelle probiotic, and Zoloft (25 mg).
