Unhappy can't get a docs appointment

I phoned up today to get an doctors appointment, but i couldn't get one, with my doctor i'll probably have to wait 3 weeks, unless sombody cancels. I'm kinda scared, i don't want to have to wait that long.

Re: can't get a docs appointment

hi zoe,
how frustrating!! is your doc in a group practice that allows you to see another doc? 3 weeks is ridiculous --- good luck!

Re: can't get a docs appointment

I was offered one with another doc, but i didn't take it. My doctor asked me to make an appointment, but i was a bit late making one so i guess t was my fault. She was going to arrange therapy for me, and she's the only doctor i trust there, so i don;t think i'd feel comfortable seeing another doc.

Re: can't get a docs appointment

hmmm - if that's the only reason you're going in, why don't you try just calling your doc? apologize for your lateness & explain you don't want to wait 3 weeks...maybe she'll give you the info on the phone or fit you into her schedule. i understand, finding the right therapist is very very important!! there are a couple websites that list good therapists that i would trust much more than the phone book.

Re: can't get a docs appointment

You might try calling each day and ask if they have any cancellation appointments, or if they have a cancellation appointment list you could be put on. They always want to fill those slots.

Yeh, I agree with ms***z. I always get an appt. with all sorts of doctors and services when I get on the cancellation list. People cancel appts. all of the time.
