Re: My Doctor dropped me as a patient.
I feel bad for you, mr. panicky. I had a doctor drop me and get this----it was an ob/gyn and I was 5 months pregnant! She said that I had so many complaints and worried so much she felt another doctor could take better care of me. She referred me to a clinic (one of the hospital clinics that usually take in people with no insurance) even though I had excellent insurance. She said that the residents there liked "high maintenance" patients. I told her she had to be kidding me. I got on the phone, got another ob/gyn and he was so ticked off at my former doc's actions, he called her and told her about it. He said she had some nerve referring me to the clinic she did because that place is a last resort when people are very poor, the residents are overworked, etc., and no way would I have gotten good care. Looking back, I honestly don't know what I did. I asked for more frequent appts. with her than are usually scheduled, but I NEVER called her office or called her after hours or anything like that, and I was never rude or pushy to her or her staff (that's very unlike me anyway). I was hurt and felt like a fruitcake. My new doc assured me that some doctors just don't like some patients, but most good docs can overcome that and still treat them. He said my old ob/gyn needed to grow up and "put on her big girl panties"! That made me feel waaaay better!
