I'm fuming. Face cherry red, and smoke coming out of my ears FUMING. Waited over an hour and a half again to see the doctor today. They stick you in a tiny white room where you're not allowed to use your phone, and you sit there watching the clock for 93 minutes. If my gym had a heavy bag, I'd be there right now.

What's a good site for finding a new doctor?

I find convenient doctors off my insurance list then google the heck out of them.

Same!

Ugh I can understand being in the waiting room for that long, but being in the other room? Weird :(

I guess I'll do that. I'll try BC/BS's website to find a doctor, then "google the heck out of them".

If I do have to go to this doctor again, I might have to get discourteous on his arse!

I always find the list of docs my insurance company gives me to be very out of date/inaccurate. If it's something you're comfortable asking other, I'd ask friends/coworkers who they see, especially people on the same insurance plan.

Ugh, I hate it when they leave you closed up in the room waiting forever. I'm always afraid that no one knows I'm in there or they've forgotten about me, since the door is shut and obviously I'm being quiet since I'm by myself with nothing at all to do.

I don't wait for doctors more than half an hour anymore. My time is worth as much as theirs is. And if they put me in a room, I make them leave the door open so I can wave to anyone walking by to remind them I'm there and I definitely use my phone in there! It doesn't interfere with medical equipment and that rule is for their comfort, not yours.

I second asking local friends for recommendations.

I don't know anyone or any neighbors as I am new to the area.

I am giving my doctor's office one more chance on Monday and if they do that again, I'll find a new doctor.

Thanks for the advice!

I'd like to chime in and say I need a new doctor too!

Misdiagnosis, not taking me seriously, not making a referral to the hospital, not sending letters and not calling me when promised. I'm changing surgeries as soon as I can.

Sorry to hear that, 8ball. You have my empathy and I wish you luck, and health.

Thank you. I hope your appointment Monday turns out well for you, whether that means staying with your current doctor or finding a new and better one.

Today turned out to be easy. I walked right in as they opened and was immediately directed to the ultrasound technician's little room. She took all her pictures and I was outta there! No wait, no hassle, no problem. Well, the sticky goo was cold after a while, but that's about it.

Question: is this a walk in clinic? From your latest post it sounds like it is. If that's the case, I think long wait times are to be expected. Except when I've gone right when a place has opened, if there isn't a scheduled appointment time, I just expect it to take forever.

Nope. A doctor within a practice of a bunch of doctors and you have to have an appointment. This practice is affiliated with the huge medical center here, though. Which is a ton of buildings for various things.
