valentines day

Friday, February 14, 2020

I have figured that.. in our area, no doctors at the hospital stay there after noon on Fridays ( Friday afternoons are the new Wednesday's when doctors where found on the golf course) the only doctors around are those on call or in the ER

With that, I got a call at 1224 from the doctors nurse about my laps. I had just missed it by two minutes.. Called them back immediately and after a 10 minute hold, was told they already left for the day.. i told the answering service she had just called me and was told they could not look as they were not in the same building as the doctors offices.

So I have to wait until Monday to talk to them. Meanwhile I am following suggestions from google, have contacted my woman's health doctor and will see her next week and then look into other suggestions to prepare myself for what she is going to say

    That is very frustrating. Our doctors here are the same, out the door by noon. The office staff is usually still working until early afternoon though.
    It’s no help, but the vets are open and available until 6 pm on Friday and have a 6 hour day on Saturdays. Unless it’s an emergency they don’t see patients on Sunday, but they will talk to you on the phone. It’s a pay on your own thing though, we don’t have insurance. But it says something about health care.

    I have given my doctor permission to leave a message on our answering machine (Yes.........we still have a land-line as well as 2 cell phones).

    You are right though...……….both our doctor and our dentist are out-of-the-office on Fridays. I try not to need them until Monday, but it doesn't always work.

    I am praying that all goes well for you. emoticon

    In our area neither doctors nor dentists work on Friday. Our small rural hospital just closed its doors. Now if you're sick on Friday or the weekend it's a 40 mile trip to the closest urgent care. Monday is a holiday so they will all be closed, too. Maybe this is the reason medical/dental care has gotten so expensive, so they only have to work 3 or 4 days a week.

    What lousy timing. So sorry that happened. I know sometimes it can be hard to wait. I think most of the doctors around here close early on Fridays too. Hope you can enjoy the weekend anyway. Have a good one.
