Geesh, I am really having a lot more pain lately thus decided that I perhaps should book an appointment wiih a Rheumatologist, after looking at who is on my insurance plan, I make a few calls. The first one I call is retiring. Then kindly gives me the name of a very good dr. So I call that office and get a nast lady anmed Nancy, that said that they NEED a referral and then after they get that, they will review the info and decide if they can set an appointment or not. So then I ask and when is the soonest appointment and she says March. So I sighed and asked if she was having horrible pain and this Dr could not see her for months, who would she go to instead, well she got all pissy with me and told me to ask my insurance compny who I should see. I'm really getting mad at this point and tell her that she has not answered my question. She then gets even more pissy and still does not want to give me a name. After practically begging and pleading with her she finally throws me a bone. I then ask her name again, and thank her for being so nice and helpfull and then hung up. Now I am saying a few choice words. Why do they have to make it so difficult to get help. If she is such a witch I can imagine what it must be like going to the office. At this point I am too upset to pursue it.
