I've been going to her for 3 years (this is my 1st baby) and I don't know whether it was pregnant *** me that came out or what, but I got fed up today and quit my OB. Tell me if this is standard in other places but I wait on hold 20-25 minutes to reach a scheduler, 25+ minutes to reach a nurse on the phone, 30-45 minutes to see the lab or the nurse in the office and 45-60+ minutes to see the doctor. After my scheduled appt time. I've never waited less than these ranges, ever. Ever. Finally today I had to "run in and drop off" a pee sample and waited 30 minutes to be let in to pee at the lab. With a UTI.
I was done. I've already put down a $500 deposit on the delivery (is this typical?) and I'm gonna have to get it back. Sigh.
A coworker recommended another doctor who doesn't make her wait and I called and they (shock!) picked up the phone! AND I didn't go on hold! And they immediately scheduled me for my preferred day. Then I found out she is a member of my running group and I was super happy.
Hopefully baby and I live happily ever after with this decision. And I get my $500 back.
Thanks for reading my whine!
