The state of womens health in this country makes me wanna cry!!!
Edited on Wed Jul-20-05 09:08 AM by xultar
I'm having an issue. Appointments are scheduled up for months now.
The office help is rude and arrogant. God forbid someone be sick or in pain and have to deal with an asshole receptionist.

WHY???

If they want women to have babies then why make health care for women be shit? I just don't get it.

FUCK'EM FUCK'EM ALL!

I'll just see if I can get meds for pain and tough it out. :cry:

1. Good luck
I'm in the same boat with you. Been having an "issue" since February and after going to 3 different doctors, with one of them telling me I must be imagining it, they've finally found something and the good news is it's getting larger every month.

Malpractice insurance isn't high because of lawyers, it's high because of fucking retarded doctors who don't want to be bothered to do their jobs because they don't think they can bill enough out of your insurance company.

I'm feelin' ya!

3. Change your doctor?
For the first time in my life, I've got medical issues.

Cold-called a hospital-affiliated, local clinic and was treated like a queen. Got an appointment the following day. Saw the doctor immediately.

I never had a "primary care" physician and therefore (for bureaucratic reasons) had to cold-call another physician's office - and, again, was treated like an important human being and was set up for a "hello" meeting with the doctor in a few weeks.

Good luck.
