Well, that sucked today

Went to the family doctor today for my annual flu shot. For those of you who don’t get them, do it, I haven’t had the flu once since I started getting them some years back.

Anyway, went to the doctor I have been going to for 28 years and when the door to the exam room opened…not my doctor, some other doctor. Seems my doc is finally retiring and he’s slowly training this new partner. So, sure, why not, I let him do the appointment. I have to say that was the single worst doctor’s visit I’ve ever had. No bedside manner, rude, short with my old doctor, just not a pleasant visit after all. Very much a know-it-all.

Now comes the time to choose a new doctor…UGH! I was just overall very disappointed though, I wasn’t even warned I might not see my normal doctor, which I don’t think is right, but maybe that’s just me.

    Let your retiring doctor know that you will be finding another practice because of what happened. A lot of times doctors don’t realize when someone left their practice, or why. If he doesn’t hear from the patients about this new guy, he won’t know to correct it.

  • I let his nurse and receptionist know and I plan on letting him know also. There was just no good moment yesterday as the other doctor kept popping up.
