I Need to Vent! - Chapter 27
Now as I have stated in the past, we really like our doctor. His communication skills and intelligence are at the top. His staff is always polite and courteous to us when we are there and when I have to call....every week.. and that is where the problem begins.
You see, Don has a Doctors appointment every other week, usually on Tuesdays. He goes into the clinic though, every Monday to get his blood work done. Every single time Don has an appointment on Tuesday, without one exception, the doctor has the results from the previous days blood work for us to review. So why is it that on the off week, the week where we do not have an appointment, it takes FOREVER for us to get the results? Here it is Wednesday morning and when I called the nurse to see where my copy is, her response is usually the same..."I have not seen it come over the fax yet from the clinic."
This week is especially important because we need to know if his platelet count is still dropping. Add to that the fact that when he had his blood drawn on Monday, after he left the office, the tape came off of his arm holding the cotton ball onto the injection sight. He was walking back to his car and felt something wet. Blood was running down his arm and got all over the sleeve of his shirt.
I think I may need to call his doctor today...what do you think?
