Cancelled “Doctor House” appointment — really annoying

My make-up appointment with Dr. House was today. It got cancelled.

I’m so annoyed.

I expressed to the lady who runs the desk just how vital it was that I do not stand around forever, waiting on this guy. I can not sit. This was abundantly clear to her.

So I call today, at 2:00 to find out how he is running for my 3:00 appointment. They say don’t bother coming in until 4:15. Smartly, I call at 4:00 to see how he is doing on time. They tell me I won’t be seen until after 5:00. I was like okay, I’ll call you back at 4:45.

This is where it get brutally annoying.

They say I have to come in by 4:15 because the lady who is going to take my blood pressure and EKG is leaving by 4:30. I’m like, I don’t need those. That’s not why I am coming in. So we get into a mild argument and she says I HAVE to get those done. There. I can’t fax them over from any other doctor. Really? It’s not like when you get your blood drawn it is only good at one location. So stupid. I explained to them that it was ridiculous for me to have to wait, and be in excruciating pain, to get two “tests” done, that only take 5 minutes. Well, maybe 10 with the EKG. They would not budge. I think it’s one thing that they need them, but can’t they be a bit more flexible, especially since they expect their patients to be flexible with a two or three hour window? Seriously, Comcast has a better window of service than this guy. Besides, the more I pressed them, it was clear that it was going to be well past 5, if not 6 before I would be seen. Really? They would make someone wait 2 hours!

So I had to reschedule. I really do hope this man can fix me, because, if not, I have waited 4 1/2 months to see him. If he says hmm, nope, nothing I can do … I will scream. Especially since my friends stopped by his office to hand him my health history, which, if you know me, is very detailed.

My husband is going to go nuclear on them tomorrow.
