just sayin' ... where's the accountability???
Saturday, October 29, 2016
Well ... the dental saga is almost over. The dentist did call and left a message that she was returning our phone call coz we called and asked her to call us ... NOT. We called and complained to the office manager and said if the dentist wanted to talk to us ... we were open to discuss our concerns with her!!! She did call two more times ... so we called her. She is very sorry BUT contradicted herself again and blamed others.
Our list of 17 concerns between hubby and my care was narrowed down to one(1) in her mind ... hubby being in pain for soooooo long ... which was not her fault coz the receptionist did not tell her Friday when we called.
She stood behind prescribing steroids to reduce swelling because in her opinion ONLY 3% of patients have insomnia issues with steroids. And the pharmacy should have advised us about insomnia ... even though she didn't.
I reiterated that I found out insomnia is in the top ten of side effects. Sleep is critical in our household due to a traumatic brain injury hubby experienced which the entire dental office was made aware of day one and repeated every time we came in. She still feels MOST patients ONLY have the side effect of tummy issues ,,, hubby was a RARE incident.
We left it with ... we deserve a dentist that truly cares about our RARE issues and all of our over a dozen concerns. Hubby was on the edge of a manic episode TWICE during her watch and she still doesn't understand how valuable WE are. Where's the accountability.
This is the time of year when alllllll the goodies are abundant. Desserts and treats that we don't see any other time of the year. Sugar, sugar, sugar ... every where ya look.
I AM reaching my goals coz I AM valuable.
I am reaching my goals coz I AM accountable for my actions, thoughts and relationship with food. No one can make me eat!!!
So the search is on for a new dentist.
And the continuation of taking the very best care of ME is on.
