It's March 26, 2014 and I'm recovering from bronchitis and the flu so I'm trying to catch up and post the 40+ blogs I've entered into my cellular device this year...so here is one and trust me there are many more to come....
Dec 2, 2013
This is a very sad day for me and the first time in I can't tell you how long that I cried my eyes out!
I just called my son's doctor, of over 15 years, and found out he retired in July but I never got any notification.
This news hit me so hard that it was very hard to not break down right that moment. To add to the blow the receptionist was very curt about it and just expressed no empathy or sympathy at all! When I said I am completely thrown by this news and asked how come he didn't send out any notices, her response was cold and snotty- she said that he did send out notices and that I wasn't the only one that claimed they didn't get the notice. I was just in complete shock! She could have said I'm so sorry you didn't get notified or I'm really sorry and this isn't the first time I've heard from a patient that they didn't get notification or maybe I'm not sure what went wrong, but I really feel for you or something like a human with a heartbeat!! But noooo!
I left a message with my contact info for the doctor that shared the office with our Doctor to call me and also left a message for her to pass onto my doctor because she says that he comes by to picks up mail once in awhile.
Update: Since January
I've written a lot of blogs onto my phone in the last two months because I've been sick and then they didn't make it to the website yet for one reason or another. .. so here is one of those that didn't make it, but made it haha
To this date March 26th I still haven't heard from either doctor. I don't want to think negatively, but I don't think my message made it to either doctor - it's just sad how heartless some people really are. They lack empathy and compassion and is just so confusing to me!
So yesterday I called and the lady I talked to previously claimed that I only left a message for my doctor, but not for the doctor that he shared the office with. So I left another message. My spidey senses say that I won't hear back again. .. but I will try to be positive which will be a challenge because I just feel so heartbroken. After seeing a doctor for over 17 years to just disappear or retire feels like someone died unexpectedly . I still feel the pain in my heart. And then I center myself and thank God that I had such an amazing caring man to influence not only my child's life but mine too! He came into the room just hours after I gave birth and he was such a supportive personl He will and is missed so deeply!
