Doctors....

I was talking with a friend last night, and the subject of doctors came up... I quickly decided that this would be my subject for today..

I will start by saying (and protecting myself) that there are A LOT of phenomenal doctors out there. The work they do helping people, usually goes under rated.. Like anything though, a few bad apples can ruin the bunch!!
My friend met a new doctor yesterday, this is what she had to say about him.


"He was a 100% douchebag (pardon the language LOL) and had no bedside manner at all. If he was having an "off" day, it was a doozy, because he ruined my day thats for sure." 

This is funny, in a way, but it isn't really. There is nothing worse than getting a stupid and or bad doctor when it comes to your kids.
I came across a few during my pregnancy, again when Gracie had pneumonia at 5 weeks old, and well,, almost every time I've seen a doctor since.
I totally understand that Dr's are Dr's and that we little people are just a number. They see everything, and they've seen our "issue" a million and one times. I get that!! But what I don't get, is why they don't sympathize with the fact that WE have never dealt with these issues before. Why they don't understand that it is OUR child, and we don't care how many other cases of it they've seen.

For example: The doctors in Hamilton obviously don't realize that I don't care if they're busy and that it takes a long time to get an appointment? Why though don't they have enough respect to call and at least let me know where we are in the process of getting Lylah in with a Doctor?
Maybe they see a thousand kids with heart issues, but I've only got one, and she just happens to be one that I love with all my heart. It's been two weeks since I've been told that my baby has to see a pediatric cardiologist and would you believe that no one has called me with any updates yet? That is not acceptable!!
I had to call three times and leave three not so nice messages  before I got a call back. They so nicely called back to let me know that "the referral has been made". That's it! Now I'm left to sit and wait while I watch my daughters arms turn blue day after day..
Compassion should be mandatory when it comes to pediatricians!!
I've dealt with bad doctors for simple things too. I've been left sitting in the waiting room (numerous times) with two kids for over and hour, and when I finally get in, I'm practically rushed out the door with no time left for questions.. Any concern just seems to be "that's normal", or "let us know if it's still like that next week"...
I always feel like saying "But, I'm here now,it's like that now, and I just entertained too children in your waiting room for an hour, so deal with it NOW!"

I'm going to end with another statement my friend made last night that pretty much sums up what I'm trying to say here today:


"thankfully this is the first douche i've had to deal with.. because when it comes to your children, we're going to have lots of questions and concerns and worries and want them seen NOW or YESTERDAY!, and if the Dr is too STUPID to know that and ease our fears, then as far as im concerned they are in the wrong profession." 


And really,, is that too much to ask??!!!

Loving the word Douche!! lol And hopefully you hear something about Lylah's appointment soon.
I wonder how a Dr would feel if their child was waiting over 2 weeks for an appointment... would they think, "Oh well, Drs are busy people, we just have to wait our turn, i'm sure they will call soon." ... umm I dont freakin' think so!!!!!!

I love the word Douche!!! lmao! I do,, I don't know why, but every time i see it, or hear it,, I giggle! It's just such a funny word.. I think from this point on, I will always refer to doctors as Douche Doctors!! Ha!
A doctor, or anyone working near them would never have to wait 2 days let alone 2 weeks for an appointment! So,,, I sit and I wait!!

We are still waiting for an appointment with the pediatrician too!! You're right, it's not really acceptable. It has been almost a month for us. We got the same response when I called, that the referral has been made. Waiting is the worst! My own doctor is the same, always has his hand on the door and I barely ever get to ask half of what I want to. I hope everything is ok with Lylah....Hang in there!

My favourite? The douchebaggery you get from the receptionists over the phone...you know....when you're pouring your heart, hoping that the IDIOT on the other end has some common sense but you can ***FEEL*** them rolling their eyes as you talk. Ya. Awesome!!!!
Again, not all are bad. When I hear my Mom talking to her Dr.'s patients (she's a knee specialists receptionist...cant remember the fancy word for knee doctor but anyways!)...I always think to myself, WHY CANT MY DOCTORS RECEPTIONIST BE SO NICE???!!!! Granted, my Mom puts in old school effort and care to each person she talks to but shouldnt they all?>??!!! UGH!!!

Keeping my fingers crossed that you hear back from those morons at the Hamilton Hospital sooner than later...poor Lylah and Mommy.

Isn't it the worst when you can't feel them rolling their eyes?? I could go through the phone.. Seriously! And then we're supposed to smile and be all friendly when we go there next time. I don't think enough of these girls get training on "customer service/public relations"

Sarah said...

Angela,,, you're still waiting too??!! That is disgusting!!! The good thing is that they do "triage" all referrals which would make me think that they aren't too worried about your little princess!! Keep me posted or sure.
