yes, I agree with you,sorry to say.. Yesterday, I visited a new doc in my clinic for a spinal review. I waited 45 min., before they took me in the room. It was 15 min.and the gal who did the info for the doc,,I told her I was giving them 3 more min,and I was going to walk out. She was rushed,,said,' yes, she was running 30 min. late." Then, she did all the questions; it was was another 10 min when doc came in. I told him;" you guys are sure running late." He shrugged it off. I was getting upset,which it is not a good thing when you have tests coming up.as I think, it makes things worse. He was not rushed; but it left me feeling very uncomfortable. This is a top clinic; Iam going to let my regular doc know how things were handled. I, personally think, everyone are cutting corners;especially in the hospitals and clinics; I dont see the real careing for the patients; we have become a number.
I didn't mind having to wait, it was the PAs attitude when he walked in the door. If my husband had greeted me like that when he came home...................well, let's just say there would have been some words!!! I don't treat my longarm customers with this disrespect and this will make me think more about my actions and reactions to others.
Thanks so much for your words of support and encouragement. I have let the day go into the past and working on customer quilts!!! Much more fun than Drs office anyway!!
I would say the past is past Move on it is his problem /NOt yours so leave it be ok??
I definitely won't be seeing him anymore......................
I'm glad you vented. I think some PAs have a bit of a complex, but most I have worked with have been OK. I agree that you might want to report his behavior. Hopefully he was just having a bad day, but if he wasn't, he is making it difficult for all he sees. I hope your thyroid is OK.
I have never had a bad experience with a PA yet....and have seen my fair share. My mother who is a retired RN finds his actions totally unacceptable and does think it needs reported. I was diagnosed with graves disease in 95 so I have been dealing with the thyroid for a while now...just another day in life.
You definitely need to let the manager know. Going to checkups is stressful enough as it is. You don't need rude people on top of that. Our provider group sends out questionnaires periodically requesting feedback on the care we received by all we came in contact with. Hope your next visit isn't as bad.
We occasionally get questionnaires also so hope one comes around this time. My next visit will not include him.....
It would be appropriate to report this unacceptable behavior to the management of your provider. Be specific about what was said or done to make you feel offended.
words say a lot and I know this practice has a lot of older patients, would hate for one of them to be talked to so rudely. have a call in to a friend who works in the hospital PR.
It would not be out of order to request that you be treated with respect.
exactly. and he talked rudely in front of my almost 4 yr old grandson.
Yesterday, at sheep herding, we were talking about this too. Seems every one of us had encountered a very rude PA. Don't know why they act that way. Now I call ahead and see who's seeing the patients that day.
I had never seen this PA, he is fairly new to my family Drs office....fair to say, I will not be seeing him anytime at all. Just found out he wasn't liked in the offices upstairs either!!! Makes me wonder.
