Having a Bad Day at the Doctor's Office

Why do the nurses at the pediatrician's office have to be so rude?  I love our doctor but her nurse stinks. She is rude and unconcerned. She always makes me feel like I am an over reacting mom. I honestly can't stand her today.  I need to go and pray and it's a good thing we don't go in to see her until tomorrow, because I will have time to cool down. I just have had it with the run around with my daughter. It took over 2 years to get to where we are now, and you would think that they would jump through hoops and not make me jump through hoops to get something done. One of their doctors misdiagnosed her about a year ago, and she ended up in the hospital so sick with acute colitis. Stop acting as if this is not real or just a little allergy! That is what I want to

say to her. She needs labs drawn to see what she is lacking. I know that she needs this so why do I have to come in there to let you look at her in order to get it done? She has not gained her weight back since last June when she was misdiagnosed, and now since we have her on this diet she has lost another 1/2  lb.--for a total of 4.5 lbs. She is so tiny she is 7 and weights 42.5 lbs.! That should speak for itself--are they scared to mess up again or do they want that doctor's visit fee? Ugggggh I am so upset today. I am having a feel bad day. It has hit me today that she has this for life, it's not going away, she won't out grow it like most food allergies. It's here and we need to fight it for life.  I have met a woman who's daughter was diagnosed at age 3 and she is 13, she is also a nurse, so she has helped me a lot in what to ask for at the doctor's office. I hope tomorrow  I have a more upbeat blog. I know I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.

I feel the pain in your words. Doctors and their staff can be so impersonal at times. I wish you luck with your visit and hope you find some good solutions that help!

You should hit report when you see this nonsense

I used mine for the first three years I was diagnosed. I used it for several reason, one it protects me legally from a company letting me go if I exceed my sick/personal time off. Some companies even have a max of unpaid time you can take, but the FMLA allows me to use that as well and not be a...

Symptoms can come and go that is not unusual. IMHO you should keep the appointment as scheduled.
