Punk Rock Parents: My Freakin' Doctor

My Freakin' Doctor

I have been nothing but frustrated with my current OB doctor. Well not really my doctor but with her office. She is nice enough but there are other issues:

  • The average wait time for my appointment in over 2 hours
  • out of the 3 appointments I have had 2 have been rescheduled.
  • I was suppose to have an appointment Tuesday and they called me 10 minutes before my appointment time to reschedule. I was already in the parking lot.
  • Her second office that is closer to me is in an Urgent Care so when I wait for 2 hours I am surrounded by sick people.
  • The doctor she referred me to for some testing also made me wait 3 hours and had cockroach traps in their rooms.
These are just the big deals that I just don't want to deal with anymore. I am in the process of trying to switch to a new doctor so wish me luck with that.

So after the last rescheduled appointment I was pissed. I was in the car with The Phi in the back seat and called PR Dad to vent. Apparently The Phi was paying very very close attention. This is the conversation I had with her yesterday morning.

"Mom, when are you going to see your Freakin' doctor again?"


"Its just doctor, not freakin' doctor"


"Can I go with you next time you see the freakin' doctor?"


"Yes, but don't call her freakin' doctor."


I told PR Dad about this exchange and he let out a sigh of relief and said,


"I thought I was going to be the bad influence, but it's you"

  2. Had me laughing. I think freaking is a pretty good word. I'm the bad influence, here. My daughters say their language is all my fault. (I don't use freaking.)

  3. Can't you change doctors?

  4. The average amount of time a Dr spends with a patient is less than 15-min. To wait 2-3 hrs means these doctors have bad scheduling. Even at my Urgent Care at Sansum I have never waited more than 45-min to one hour. Would you wait that long to see your auto mechanic? Don't think so.
