I was suppost to have a discogram this Monday morning. I always make sure I have everything done before I have any kind of appointment, such
as appointment time, making sure my insurance is covering it, in this case
my discogram. I've found out, don't assume anything! Wow, good thing I
did. I called the office of the doctor who was going to do the test. This doctor is 4 hours away. It was at 6:45am. Guess what? No appointment
in the computer. Nobody had called, I told her, "you called me, you
made the appointment, & sent me papers to fill out, instructions to do &
not do. Don't eat or drink for 8 hrs. before test. So after convincing her, she said ok, there's been a mistake in the system, see you Monday
morning. My phone rings 45minutes later, same lady calls, your appointment has been canceled. "What", I say. Your referring doctor
canceled it. I am shocked! What would have happened if I hadn't called?
I would have spent money for a motel room, suffered from riding for 4hrs.
Yep, that's what would have happen. I call the spine surgeons office, who
referred me to them for the test. She says," yes, your NS, didn 't want
us to have us do it"!!! I call my NS, they say they didn't do that. They
wanted the test done!!! I call the office of the doctor who set the discogram up, all of a sudden, the women becomes an idiot!!! She
doesn't know anything( keep in mind) she mad appointment &
canceled it. Nobody, is taking respondsibility. I think I need to fire all of them! And start all over! While I'm at it, hire an attorney!!! I'm so upset...
I'm sorry for posting this stuff. I guess I'm just venting!!! Can doctor's do anything they want? I'm so sick of dealing with doctors and insurance companies! What should I do? I wish I didn't need them..
