I am so upset right now. Being the type of person I am, I called my OB/GYN's office this morning to confirm my initial appointment for my ultrasound on Monday morning. . . . and learned that, for reasons which are a mystery, the appointment had been booked in the practice's satellite office which is over an hour from my house (in light traffic), rather than at the main office, which is 20 minutes from my house and less than 10 minutes from my office.
I cannot imagine why this happened. I have been a patient of the practice for nearly three years, and the only appointments I have ever had have been in the main office location. I know that I specified the main office, but even if I had not. . . . why would anyone book me an appointment in a satellite office I have never visited? It just doesn't make any sense.
Because it was their screw-up, the office moved some other appointments at the main office to "squeeze" me in at 9:30, instead of the 8:30 appointment I had scheduled. But I am so angry with them right now that I am considering finding another practice. Seriously, I cannot be dealing with this sh1t for the next several months.
I have a call in to the nurses' line at Local RE's office to see if they can do my first ultrasound there early next week instead. (St. Mungo's was kind enough to fax orders for the u/s to Local RE.)
Ugh, I hate dealing with doctors' offices!
