Grumpy nurses make me grumpy

DH's urology appointment isn't until mid-December.  I figured we could call and get put on the cancellations list and hopefully get in sooner.  DH called and the receptionist told him she doesn't keep a cancellations list because it's too much work.  She told him she could guarantee he would be waiting until December.  DH said she had a horrible attitude about the whole thing, including mentioning other patients who were "worse off" than DH.  I'm thinking we might be hunting a new urologist based solely on his grumpy receptionist.

  • WTF? I would call and ask to speak to a supervisor. They should not be making comments like that. There are people "worse off"?? Well I'm sure they don't want you talking about them like that, lady! Nor does that make YH any less of a priority.

  • Whoa.  Do you have other urologist options?  If so, I would probably be inclined to look elsewhere too.  B*tches bring out a seriously b*tchy side in me, so I wouldn't be able to act respectfully towards her.

    October 2011 - DS (7)  <3

  • @cheesypeas There are a couple of other options in town.  I'm waiting to hear back and see if they are in our insurance network.  We could go 1.5 north to a larger city and have better luck, but I'm trying to hold off on that.  If we get referred to the ART clinic, we will be making that trip regularly.  

    @amores0121  I'm glad it was DH that called and not me.  I probably would have lost it on her.
