Intro: I’m having issues with the doctor’s office…
I haven’t been on this website in a long time. And to have been such a long time since I have been on, it is nice to see how many more posts and stories have been added to it. The fact that I can relate to so more people is quite relieving.
From my last post “My story of hope and UC“, things have been up and down for me. I have been having flare ups that only last a week and then disappear, and pop up again two weeks after!
I have been having difficulties trying to make appointments to see my doctor! It’s awful. Every time I call to make one, they always tell me they will call back the same day, but never do!! Recently, my doctor just hired a new assistant, and she doesn’t like to call people back the same day, or the day after that! I have to constantly call, to get through, and most of the time can’t! It is ridiculous. I just got a letter from the office saying I had missed an appointment that I have never made! It states that if I do not make an appointment within the next few days that I will be discharged from the practice…
Does anyone have this problem?? If I can’t get through then I can’t make an appointment, if I can’t make an appointment then I will get discharged. And the other practice where I live is on the other side of the state!!
I don’t know what to do about the situation.
Does anyone else have any insight?
Thank you and God Bless.
