Bitch Ass Physicians
A prescription I've taken for years is running out. When that happens I have to schedule an appointment with my female family physician to get it renewed. Nope, she won't renew on the phone and just has to see me. Apparently this is how some physicians make their money by demanding that their patients see them just to renew a prescription. This always pisses me off. Waste of money. Waste of time. Not needed.
Doc: I won't renew your prescription until you complete the blood work.
Me: That's not going to happen. I did blood work last year. Nothing has changed. The medication I take has no effect on my vitals or anything else. You've said that yourself. Blood work two years in a row is a waste of my blood, my time and my money. Just renew the prescription and I'll be out of here.
Doc: I won't renew your medication until you do the blood work.
At that point in our dialogue she's taking my pulse for some stupid reason instead of listening to her patient and attempting to come to some understanding of what his needs are.
Me: You can stop taking my pulse. This exam is over.
On the way out she looks back at me and says:
Doc: I'll see you later.
I'm thinking, "Huh? What a stupid comment".
Me: I don't think so. You will definitely not be seeing me any time later.
Adding insult to injury I was charged for an office visit. As I wrote out a check for the co-pay I thought hmmm, bet this chick gets a kick back from the lab for every series of blood work she sends their way.
Refusing treatment to a patient who has contrary beliefs is just terrible. I'm glad that I discovered what this witch is all about and not during a future medical crises. Better to know now that this person has no respect for what her patients want and need then to die from her neglect later.
