This is getting ridiculous. Way past time for a change.
She charts everything by computer, and every visit is more or less as if she has no idea what we've done prior or what's even wrong with me.
It's a small office and they downsized and no longer even have a nurse in the office. But I think they're milking this office visit thing for money.
They used to have good communication via phone when there was a regular nurse, but now I have to go for an office visit for everything...and begin all over again as if the doc didn't just see me three days ago (argh!) She actually asked me why I was there last time I came in and I said Because I'm SICK and you told me to come back in??? (maybe it comes out more polite than that) Their office has a phone line where you leave the doc messages for refills or other communications. At her instruction, I've called with updates she requested. She's answered none of my calls. At the last visit, she said she is not going to do anything via the phone, and is just going to have me come in each time since I get confused. I'm the one confused???
I really think at this point that in my case she has no idea what she's doing, and I can't believe I've waited this long to change docs. Dang dang dangit!
And now how to get a referral to someone better without paying my current one for another office visit...
