Had my first appointment this morning at 10 am. I left extra early since it was raining a traffic was horrible. I made it in time though and gave the receptionist my paperwork, insurance card etc. as well as my co-pay that she asked for. Almost immediately I was taken back to a room by a very nice lady. My thoughts were ""Yeah, no long waiting to get in"". (I did bring my book with me today thinking I would need it in the waiting room) LOL. So she puts me in my room and tells me someone will be in. After a few minutes I see that perhaps I do need my book after all. I start to read and watch the time along the way. 50 minutes goes by and I have not seen another human being in my room. I have had 50 minutes of solitude. As a mother of a 4 yr old that is a rare pleasure to have 5 minutes let alone 50. However, I really had very high hopes of becoming pain free or at least have a little relief. The reviews I had read were good for the most part. As I walked down the hall to the front, I passed 2 people working at the nurses station and the nice receptionist told me to have a nice day. Yes, I guess as long as I was back there she would assume I actually saw the doctor or maybe even the nurse. But no, I saw NO ONE. At this point I figure if I am not RESPECTED enough to even be given the courtesy of someone letting me know the doctor is running late or he took off to play in the rain, the odds are I would not receive QUALITY care when someone managed to get to my room. Although at 4pm and not so much as a phone call to appologize or anything perhaps they think I am still in the little room waiting for my 10 am appointment that they had scheduled for me. I am still on my quest to find a caring doctor who might actually have the time and skills to help me. I really don't know if there are any like that in the corporate world where we are hearded like cattle and all that matters is the all mighty dollar. This doctor may actually be great. To bad I never got to find out. So I am off to the next one on my list and praying with everything I have that the next one will want to at least see me, and with any luck, do more then just hand me a pill and herd me out the door.
