So, I was going to go with a doctor that accepts my insurance closer to home, but they weren’t accepting new patients right then and I wanted to get in and have a check up done soon, because I was experiencing pains that were not normal. I decided I should go with this clinic since it was right across the street from the Legacy hospital, which is where I’ll be having any future kids. Figured it would probably be a good idea to choose a doctor that was close if needed.
Well, they have been nothing but a royal pain in my ass the whole entire time. It took a month to be seen (kind of expected that), then when I was seen by the doctor they gave me, she was not compassionate or considerate of my needs. She basically gave me a pee test, pressed on my stomach for a second, says she wants to schedule a pap smear in a couple of weeks, and went on her merry way. She comes back with the results of the pee test and says that i have a minimal bladder infection and prescribes me antibiotics. I take the antibiotics for a few days and the clinic calls me up and tells me to stop taking them because I don’t have a bladder infection. WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON HERE? So not only did I waste money on the pills, but they charged me 3 times for lab tests for one pee sample? This shit should be refunded…
So, the next 2 weeks go by and the clinic calls me up and says they’re going to have to reschedule because “SHE” wasn’t going to be returning to work for a few days. How convenient. I should have taken that as a clue to switch clinics right then but I gave the doctor and the clinic another chance and rescheduled for the following week which was supposed to be today. I check my voice mail, and once again, they’re calling because they don’t have me scheduled down for the pap smear and it was only for a 2 week check up which is only 15 minutes long. A 2 week check up of what? You haven’t done nothing lady but check my pee which you diagnosed incorrectly. Maybe for my pains, YES I AM STILL HAVING SLIGHT PAINS, but I don’t need to go there for 15 minutes just to tell you that so you can charge me a ridiculous amount of money for you not giving me your time.
So I called them back up to tell them I am not coming to the appt for just a 2 week check up and I will never make an appt here again because they keep trying to reschedule me. After a while, people are going to get angry when they keep being put on the back burner.
I’m going to try to find a better clinic. Some place that’s actually more organized, can diagnose me correctly and actually see me. After all, its my time, my body, and my money.
