New Beginnings

So, let me go back to Sunday when the doctor said called my office of Tuesday so that we can squeeze you in to be seen.  I called the office at 8:31.  When I got a call back from the nurse the soonest they could get me in was Thursday at 11.  (My original appointment for a repeat ultrasound).  When I asked for an appointment first thing so I wouldn't have to sit in a aiting room with pregnant women for up to 2 hours.  The nurse simply said, nope, they can't get me in.

Needless to say, I was furious about this and couldn't believe that a doctor that I have gone to for 10+ years couldn't squeeze me in.  I am not one to call or demand an appointment unless it is a problem.  Other than this pregnancy, I am certain that I can count on one hand the number of times I actually called with a problem in 10+ years. 

My plan was to finish this pregnancy with the old doctor and then switch..well, now I had dcided that there was NO WAY, I could go back to that office.  There is no communication, there is no sympathy.  I just can't deal.

I called new doctor, and told my story and the nurse asked me to hold for a minute.  She quickly came back and I was told the doctor feel that you have to wait is unacceptable he is able to squeeze me in Wednesday...I will have an ultrasound and then have an appointment with the doctor.  A doctor I have never seen before is willing to help me out.  The office will call and get records and cancel all appointments.

I have a sense of relief, I feel like I have made the right decision for us and I am liking the idea that this doctor will listen to me and respond appropriately rather than brushing me off.


  1. So glad to hear you found another doctor. I do not like how that other doctor treated you; not one bit.
    Stil sending thoughts and hugs your way.

  2. I'm sorry that your doctor was so apathetic. Glad you found someone who could see you.
