I went to my 1st apointment with my surgeon today. My scheduled apointment was at 10:30am. My primary care doctor made the apointment over a week ago. As usual I arrived early to fill out the new patient paperwork. At 11:30am I still hadn't been seen or even called back to an exam room. I went to the sign in window and informed the receptionist that I had been waiting over an hour and could I reschedule unless I could be seen in the next 5 minutes. I explained that I had a compression test and ultrasound scheduled at the hosiptal at 1pm and wanted to get something to eat before the tests. She informed me that it would be at least another 30 minutes maybe longer since they were fitting me in stating that my apointment was made yesterday. No I informed her of when my apointment was made and that yesterday was Sunday and they wern't open on the weekends. She rescheduled me for another apointment in 10 days. I was informed that I may have to wait again as long or maybe longer. I went a head and took the apointment and told her to make a note that I had already paid my co-payment for my new apointment. Then I left and got some lunch and then to the hosiptal for my tests. The more I think about it I think I may go back, cancil my new apointment, get my co-payment back and hope I have better luck with a different surgeon.
What do you think? What would you do? Hubby wasn't happy when we left today. He understood why.
