Have you EVER gotten so TIRED of waiting for your Dr..
that you just up and left the room?

Had an appt. today with an opthamologist.

Went to see him for the first time a couple of months ago after I mistaken put some Cell Food in my eye (bottle is similiar to Visine) Made an appt. for a follow-up visit .. soonest I could get in was today.

Tech came and took me back to the room and did preliminary eye tests.. then put the dialating drops in.

After 45 minutes of waiting.. I got po'd and just up and left.

They tried to call me an hour and a half later.. but I was laying down with a headache and didn't answer my phone.

This is the absolute longest I have ever waited in my life for a Dr.

Would you have left?

Re: Have you EVER gotten so TIRED of waiting for your Dr..
Before she took me back to the exam room we stopped off at a small room with a Nidek OPD Scan II.

She told me that the scanner was to measure the size of your eyes??

I think I got paranoid with all the time I had to sit and think about why they needed to scan my eye ball.

I have come to realize that most doctors are idiots whose uselessness is outdated with the rise of the internet. It's so easy to self diagnose most things.

I've waited an hour and a half before, only because I could wait days or weeks to get another appointment.

I have never gotten up and left, but when the wait is excessive I do get very bored and begin to play with things. Blood pressure cufts and things like that are fair game for my entertainment.

I had a severe eye injury when I was 7. I wanted to insure that my eye was ok.

My prelim test was actually better than it had been at my last eye Dr. appt. 15 years ago.

That, combined with the "scanner" and the very long wait .. well I got antsy lol

Haven't seen a doctor since I was under 10 :x

No clue.

My advice; befriend a practitioner/doctor outside of practice and just get them to give you drugs you need on request.

Re: Have you EVER gotten so TIRED of waiting for your Dr..
thats bull. I got my eyes diatated in about 10 minutes most. And yes I would have walked out, screw that, Dr's receptionist set the times wrong. I pay cash for my appointments. My time is as important as theirs. physicians should treat you as a guest. fresh coffee or tea, and plesant waiting rooms. Damn,at least foot for a coffee maker.

You should send your Dr. a bill for your time...
I am dead serious, and when he laughs it off you should send him another and another, and then send him a 90 day past due notice.

And then take him to court and get a lien placed on his home for the amount.

I am not kidding about this, I've read my Doc the riot act for wasting my time. he/ she is not more important than I am and I let them know it.

This is why I just bring earbuds to plug into my phone wherever I go. If I'm ever bored or kept waiting I just play some music and drift off into daydream land. Hours fly by like this. I use it at my job a lot to keep from going insane.
