In which he’s transferring

Have you noticed that when you have a bunch of gallons of milk that nobody wants to drink milk but when you are out of milk somehow everybody is clamoring for milk?


That’s not what this post is about but I was just putting milk in my coffee and I realized that we have over 2 gallons of milk and I thought I’d ask.  Don’t bother answering because very frankly I don’t care.


So, THIS happened yesterday.  I don’t know if you remember but when Keely had to go into the hospital for a Pulmonary Embolism last month everybody kept asking me who her primary doctor was.  Of course, we didn’t have a primary doctor so finding an answer was difficult.


Because she now had five trillion doctors handling five trillion different medical issues I searched for a family practice doctor.  The requirements were as follows:


  1. in the same practice (a huge practice spread all over the city) as her hematologist and pulmonologist were in so they could see her records.

  2. In the practice where they would be tracking her Coumadin

  3. Nearby … as in NOT TOO FAR FROM MY house

  4. Somebody young enough to understand all the various and sundry components of her medical history

  5. Somebody familiar with PCOS (Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome)


I found somebody who fit all these requirements and in we went to the appointment.  It took forever since there was so much medical history and so many forms to fill out to get information from Duke and other various places BUT we really like the guy we got.


He was nice, young, informed and seemed to want to put all the pieces together.  We scheduled a follow-up appointment for 6 weeks after Keely had seen the hematologist and gotten 20 vials of blood taken.  All seemed awesome until YESTERDAY


WHEN we received a letter saying:


Dear Patient,

Thank you for allowing JoeSmoe HealthCare and Dr. Whomever to provide medical care and service to you.  We are writing to let you know that Dr. Whomever will be transferring to the High Point office effective July 16th.




Next week this guy is transferring to High Point, which is another city entirely?  I couldn’t believe it.  One of the reasons we chose this guy was because he was only a few miles from our house.  I talked to him about transferring not only myself but Andie and Daniel AS WELL into his care.


I’m so pissed off.  I’m sure they knew this would happen when we made the original appointment and now I have to find a NEW doctor again since this is incredibly inconvenient to us.


I feel confident that by the time Keely is well and all is said and done, I will be insane.


Not that that’s going to be a stretch.

    What happens in my household is, they guzzle everything down but when there’s just about 2oz of milk in the carton, no one touches it. I don’t know for what stupid reason but it irritates the hell out of me.

    As for the doctor…what a schmuck…after going through all that? I’m sorry you had to go through all the trouble only to be transferred.

    I don’t get it, either. I was poked, prodded and these doctors had their fingers up my you-know-what when I was going through tests and I don’t understand the need for all of it when they weren’t going to do anything more but transfer me to someone else.

    No, you won’t go insane. Maybe you’ll just start drinking lol.

    Want that group hug now? :D

    I guess that is what sportsmen would say as breaks of the games. You have no choice but to get a new doctor.

    Yeah, none of us has a PC here either. We live by the urgent care. I’m sure if we did find someone we liked, this is exactly what would happen.

    That’s bullshit! And I’m sorry to hear about Keely’s medical problems. I hope she’s on the road to recovery.

    That is absolute horse shit. I would Google the rat bastard and go to one of the links that lets you rate your experience with Dr. Rat Bastard ~ and I’d have fun doing it.
    Good luck with your unfortunate “start all over” doc search.
