Here’s the rant part of my lovely blog title.
Doctors and their staff is the topic, and basically why I need a new doctor asap.
Long story short, my doctor’s office called me yesterday regarding my allergy medication because I needed a refill, and the prescription expired apparently. I didn’t notice this, and off topic sorta, I should be using the mail-in pharmacy to save some cash, but I’m not. The pharmacy called the doctor’s office, and then the doctor’s office called me, and they left a message… I naturally called them back, and the doctor’s office has no recollection of this. The staff claimed I didn’t get the prescription from the doctor in that office. Meanwhile, I have been going to this doctor since last January. It was so ridiculous. Oh, did I mention I spoke to three different people, who all spoke broken English, Russian being their native language. Oh, and I wasn’t able to speak to my doctor to clarify any of this.
After this exhausting conversation, I realized it was time to find a new doctor. I asked for my records to be ready for pick up, and that I was no longer going to be a patient of that medical office. No one protested, and gladly agreed.
I promptly posted my desire for a new doctor on Facebook, and I now have an impressive list of suitable, reputable and English-speaking doctors, and staff. ;o)
The power of social networking, my friends. Wish me luck as I give my own version of a background check on these doctors.
