So I am sick and tired of crappy communication with my GI Dr. and nurses. The nurses regularly don't return phone calls and my Dr(the third in this practice b/c the first ignored me and gave me bad info, and the second who was awesome but left the practice) tells me to email him but I have to email at least twice every time get his attention and then its 'oh, sorry, somehow I didn't get your email, don't know why'. Even the nurse and Dr. clearly don't talk to each other as the nurse will call about something random and I have to tell her what the Dr told me...insanity. The main reason this freaks me out is that I am pregnant with my 2nd child, and the second I got pregnant I began to flare a litte and I was way sick with the first pregnancy and it was really scary. I mean, I'm not seriously sick right now at all, but what happens if and when I do? I am hesitant to switch practices now, but if this continues I just may have to. Does this happen to anyone else?
