Hi everybody, I am really angry I was hoping to see my endocrinologist today, but they failed to let me know that my appointment is now on the 19th September. I am angry because I can not drive and have to rely on friends to take me. The endocrinologist only comes here twice a year and we still have to travel 1 hour to see him. I am not very well and I don't need the stress of it all. But I would like to say thankyou for all your well wishes and thoughts. I have had my whinge now so I am feeling a bit better.

I am sad to hear your problem. I belong to Kaiser and I schedule my appointments on line. I get alerts in my email and when they change an appointment I get a phone message a written notice and an email alert.

I had Kaiser for about 2+ years a while ago. I was really happy with the care I got there. I would still be with them but I had to move due to cost of living where I was. No K-P here in LV —- bummer!

Hey, theres the medical system for you. SOme doctors actually care, but most are concerned with your health because it gives them a bigger paycheck.

Besides, theres not a whole lot they can do, much as theyd like you to believe. All they can reallly do is tell you theres something wrong(no really?) and give you the medication to solve one problem, cause another problem, so then you have too go through it all over again.

Why is it that doctors think their time is so much more important than OUR time? I mean, they do work for US, not the other way around.

Actually, it isn't the doctor that didn't inform you, his staff dropped the ball. Maybe he should be made aware of that fact.

You are allowed to whine-what happened to you is really not fair. What a waste of time to drive all the way there and find out you and your friend didn't need to do so. I'm so sorry, but now you know that on the 19th you'll see the doctor and find out why you're feeling so bad.
I truly hope you get some answers and I wouldn't leave until you are satisfied that everything you need to know has been told to you. Even if you have to nail your doctor's feet to the floor to stop him from leaving, get those answers!
You deserve to feel better and we are all supporting you in your quest to find out why you don't!
Take care, my friend.
