I went to the doctor today to have some fasting blood work done today. The nurse asked me if anything changed and when I said I had new insurance she went off about having to redo all the lab paperwork. She slammed things around and made it very clear to me she was not happy. I then sat there for an hour as patient after patient came in, announced they were getting blood work done, and then got seen before me. I was afraid to complain and have to wait even longer but I feel like I should so something. I do not want to cause problems but I do not want to be a door mat either. In all the excitement and nerves of starting a new job I did not say to myself, “Oh, I better call my doctor” but now I wonder if other people do. I keep wondering if I am the exception and that is why the nurse was so upset. I would love to get other people’s takes on this.
