I am so thankful that it is a new day.
I did get everything accomplished but my doctor appointment for my knee was horrible.
My appointment was fro 2:10. I am talking at the registration at 2:07, and I asked if the doctor was on time and she said yes he was. they have a new system ad she was having lots of trouble finding me and entering information. She thanked me several times for being so patient. finely got that done and I sat down. Other patients that came in after me for the same doctor were called back.
They have a board up with doctors names and what the current wait time is. His showed on time. it was then 40 minutes and I looked at the registration staff and all were busy so I just moved the little dot over showing he was over 30 minutes.
I get called back over 50 minutes later than my scheduled appointment. While I was waiting I asked to talk to someone in billing - they sent someone out to the waiting room. with not even a paper to ask what I wanted to talk about. so she gets the information and goes to check about it.
she moved it back to 0, informed me that another patient complained about me and then stated in the same breath that I had been late to my appointment. I said no and informed her of the time I was at registration. she said no that I had signed in 30 minutes state. I said I don't appreciate being called a liar. She was rude. I asked for another assistant she sat down and worked at the computer because on the way her tablet didn't even have me checked in.
I left and stood outside the room because I wasn't going to deal with her. ( he had 3 other assistants there then). As I was standing outside side he says to the other assistants that are there "what is going on I have be be at so. joe at 3:30)
so he walks in the room and says we can start while your chart is being pulled up. another person then comes in to do that. He looks and says well it has been a long time since I have had a shot he will do that.I tell him that I was still dealing with a bill for a shot that he got approved back in September. He goes out to work on the shots and the billing person comes back and first said that they are still working on an appeal. (supposedly an approval was gotten before he game me this specialty shot which was over $2,000). I was told then I might have to pay to the injection not the medicine but didn't know that yet.
THEN was informed that I couldn't get the shot at time because I had to get the from a specialty pharmacy. I had never heard of such a thing before. that I had to go somewhere and pick it up to bring it back to them to inject it.
I checked out and mentioned something to the staff member and she said she would tell the staff supervisor and gave me another appointment. didn't ask if it is a good time for me which is isn't so I have to call again. irritated at that- but I was talking and she was sympathetic. told me to be careful when I left because it was hot out - but what she really meant was for me to calm down because I had been crying before I drove.
On top of it all. the doctor didn't touch me or look while I walked like he usually does.The appointment was for my knees and so I didn't have to get one of those disposable shorts I wore my shore with my compression socks- black to the knee. I looked like a dork. I figured it's ok because it was just the doctors office. but i
Because he was so late I was late for my 3:30 appointment which was 5 minutes away ( but she knew about my other appointment). I even made it to work exactly on time.
I am going to call HR and complain. A big change such as this should have been disclosed at the meeting about insurance that we had. that to get a shot at a doctors office require TWO appointments- not sure about if two co-pays are required. plus twice the amount of time for an issue.
SO that is why I am THANKFUL that yesterday is over.
Today I called the insurance company to find out about this, 90 minutes later I still don't know what pharmacy it needs to come from.
My contractor was supposed to be here at 12. he is still not here.
I am going to take a nap.
What are you thankful for today?
Thank you for the DCE today Julie, Debbie and Mei!
I will do this later. So much to do today- I have a contractor coming over to do things and give me an estimate on others- I hope anyway.
Plus I have two appointments and work.
I will be grateful when this day is over and all has a positive outcome!
Wishing you all a wonderful and whimsical Wednesday!
