I injured my arm since beginning of June, I’m typing with one hand now btw. The first week I didn’t think much about it, it got worse till I’m lacking strength in my hand and I’m in pain most of the time, someone told me it might be carpal tunnel and I should check it out.
I booked a doctor that my mum got me to see last year as my mum thinks she’s a better doctor. The doctor is hard to make a booking with so with minor illnesses I go to a nearby clinic. Between last week and this week I managed to see another doctor as an interim measure, however my hand haven’t improved.
I managed to book an appointment this week (took one week), I went into the clinic this morning, the receptionist accused me of not turning on my cell phone so she couldn’t contact me to rescheduled, I am slightly annoyed as I couldn’t drive and my DH had to take time off work to drive me, and he’s super busy at the moment, but I can’t do anything about it so agreed to rescheduled to 2 1/2 hrs later. Turned out the receptionist only called me 10 minutes before our arrival at the clinic so I couldn’t turn back anyway.
We drove back to the clinic at the rescheduled time, waited a little while more, saw the doctor and she proceeded to loudly read out my past medical history in front of my DH, then told me I haven’t seen her for 1 and a half years, I told her it’s because it’s hard to book her and I need medical treatment and certificate for work straight away for the minor illnessses.
She proceeded to ask me of my aliment, as soon as she thought it might be work related she refused to treat me, told me it’s too stressful for her and I am not her regular patient and see no point in putting in the time to treat me . She told me I should go to my regular doctor, I thought she already took me in as a regular patient last time she agreed to see me, she had no qualms charging me double rate last time.
She also said some other things that’s not very nice and unprofessional and by that stage I’m ready to leave. The point is I waited 1 more week to see her instead of going to another doctor last Friday, I placed my trust in her, and trusted my mum’s judgment. I need to be referred to a specialist soon, I hope the doctor tomorrow won’t refuse to treat me.
