Venting

Recommended Posts

this is just a vent to let off some steam -- i had a EGD/biopsy 2 weeks ago and he told me to call him for results 3 days after the biopsy and now it's TWO weeks later and he still hasn't looked at the lab results (he's got them back, but hasn't looked at it yet)! urg -- thanks for letting me vent! <_<

I would plop myself down in his office and not leave until he saw me.....and make a loud noise like your avatar!!!!!! I hate it when doctors are so inconsiderate of their patients.

Go to the office and demand copies of the report, it is your legal right. Once you get them if you haven't seen him yet for translation you can post the results here and I am sure one of the medically savvy folks can interpret the results that are given. I would do this even if your doctor does see you as some doctors do not fully disclose lab results or will call, for example, a low positive a negative result. And as hard as it is to believe some doctors do not recognize changes that are celiac related.

I too would go down there demand a copy, and tell the receptionist that if he won't see you, then you will make another appointment with another doctor to explain the results to you.

thanks for all the support! i think i may go the route of my primary doctor -- she has to get all the results forwarded on to her anyways and i think she may be better at getting them out of him than i!

thanks again for letting me vent -- you guys all rock! :)

Isn't that frustrating... I did a sleep study on July 24th and still haven't heard anything. I called my pcp and their ofice hasn't heard anything either. But don't worry the hospital that did the test was able to find the remaining balance and get the bill out to me ASAP!

I would go and also demand the copy of the result. You should have had results by now. Even if there were problems with the samples, they would have known by now and had to call you to tell you.
