Totally the right decision

So, I met with the new doctor today.  First, I had an ultrasound and the tech was wonderful.  She was very nice and explained everything very clearly. 

Then, I met with the nurse.  She went over office policies.  She said that when I would call, I would be transferred to the nurse then she would put the doctor on the phone.  SERIOUSLY, the doctor gets on the phone!!!  How awesome is that??? Then she said that they like to bring patients in to be seen, just to be sure there are no problems.  She said that way the doctor can sleep better at night!  WOW, you don't have to beg for an appointment! 

The doctor came in and spoke to Jeff and I for close to an hour.  He liked my diligence!  He sat and listened.  He will basically do whatever I want to keep me calm.  He also told me I could have caffeine.  HELLOOOOOO Starbucks - well, really Dunkin favorite...until Starbucks Pumpkin Spice comes back!

I feel so much better and I feel like this was absolutely the right decision. 

On a different note...I got a phone call from the baby killer and was asked WHY I was transferring.  Um...yeah. I said first I don't have to give them an answer...secondly...and I gave them an earful....after 20 years she couldn't squeeze me in but a doctor I had never seen before could see me.  That speaks volumes.

I am sad I had to go through this process, but I am so happy to have a doctor who is so understanding.

Now, let the games begin.  Oh, I can start running when I feel comfortable doing so!


  1. Glad you are feeling good about this new doctor and I am glad to see you feeling a bit better. Love you, my friend!

  2. Isn't it sad that when a doctor does what they are supposed to do, we are so pleasantly surprised? I mean, what happened with your original doctor should be the exception, not the rule. Glad the new doctor is more sympathetic.
