First off I want to say it is an absolute beautiful day and after I get this off my chest I will be enjoying the rest of what is left of the day and not allow this to get to me anymore....

Today was my monthly appointment for my medication trial I am doing, I am one of those people that is always I know since covid u are not allowed to go in the offices early but that is ok I sat in my car...we are allowed to be there 5 min before so we can call in before we enter the doors....
Ok fine...I show up at 12:55( my appointment was at 1pm) I did my answer...there is a guy that sits on the other side of the door , that once u make the call he comes and checks your temperature...he sees me enter...I call more nurses etc are entering around the desk...they see I call again , I did this for 17 min...each and every one of them at least looked at me once , no one answered the phone, no one came to say " we are running late ,give us a sec" the temperature guy didn't come out to ask if I had an appointment ...NO ONE! well I waited a few more minutes...I called a total of 8 times and I left!

It upsets me that if WE miss an appointment or are late we get charged for the visit..( or as they call it an administrated fee).as stupid as that is during Covid when we are all trying to follow the same rules but that is what it is...and then they can do this to a patient ?

Now I am home and then the phone rings...." Mrs.Tenbroeck, u had an appointment at 1" duh!!!!!!!! So I proceeded to tell them what had happened and I left...I have the proof on my phone if they need proof....and to call back when or IF my appointment is rescheduled that I am NOT going back there today...

AT this point I really do not care if I get kicked out of the trial....

sorry for the rant...I had to get it off my chest so I can enjoy the rest of this stunning day....

chow for now

    Wow, that is totally unacceptable and I am so sorry this happened.
    I’m kind of a.....(bad word). I would have walked up to the door, phone up to my ear, and started pointing at them, and making all kinds of wild theatrics equivalent to “PICK UP THE $&*# phone!!”.
    (Meditation hasn’t helped with that part yet. emoticon )
    Good for you for leaving. And I wouldn’t give them one penny for the missed appointment.
    I’m so sorry. Make your day great now that it is all in the past.
