This is a picture that I took of the youngest a few years back and it captures the essence of how I am currently feeling about the lack of communication with my medical team. I sent a message through the portal a week and a half ago and have heard nothing yet. A week and a half. Frustrated is not a strong enough word. That was one specialist. I sent another message to a different specialist dealing with a totally separate issue and it has been three day (thus far) and again….nothing. And I don’t think I should even begin to voice my opinion on the fact that I was basically forced to get a primary doctor, with whom I never actually see because appointments are 3 months out. I think I’ve seen her once (my initial appointment with her) in the year and a half that she has been my primary. Don’t get me wrong, I like her a lot and think she is a great doctor, but I never can get in to see her. Like, ever.
So, tomorrow at my lunch break I will bypass the portal and make a phone call to the first specialist. The second will have until Friday. Do you hear me medical world?! You have until Friday. Ugh…..
