First I want to say I am not predjudice!! But at my Dr. office I am a piece of crap to be scrapped off there feet! I have lost most of my hearing the last ten yrs and I am 56 yrs old without my aids I am DEAF with them I can feel comfy and know someone is talking to me. At the Dr. today I have it written in red letters on my file PT. IS DEAF! They keep on walking down the hall there mouth just chewing away they are in front of me when we get into the room NO interpeter just me and the nurse telling me what to do and me saying what, finally they grab my arm to take BP then all the other crap they do, my Dr is better she will face me but let me go to the pharmacy as this is a city hospital (no ins) same crap, now I am agoraphobic (fear of leaving home) My shrink wants me to be more independant,,,,I can't even make a friggin phone call thru relay the dr wont accept it the pharmacy wont accept it I bought a v.p. video phone for the deaf both wont accept this BUT!!! They have a bi-ligual telephone service for the spanish, plus a spanish speaking dr plus an on floor interpeter but not one T.T.D. or interpeter and even asked for one. Well I woke up with the tummy virus last week and had to cancel my appointment they told me one more I am kicked out! This was thru my daughter who has no business in my medical I am not demented yet! But it took her to straighten this out. Nurse said I am allowed to miss three visits before being kicked out give me a break this is only the seventh my appointment was for the third! OH OH she made a mistake wasnt me, but then I asked the pharmacy there when my last appointment was they told me correctly and when to pick up my med for my DDD then today they said I didnt call! I called them back and they wldnt accept a relay call,,,, needless to say I am very pissed, what if this was about my baby and I was the only one home to call? Why do I have to involve my kids in my medical business before I am in a nurseing home??? Do ya all have the same problem they refused to give anyone info cause of the privacy act but for me it is given to all mykids!!!! What do I do here? Sorry wrote a book!
