Requested a new Diabetes Dr., when the authorization came in I phoned to make an appointment, two months wait. Geeez!
I went this afternoon to that Dr’s appt., handed the staff my insurance cards and sat down to fill out 5 pages of info. Grew irritated that everyone in there the waiting room and office were speaking so loudly and only in spanish. I am growing very angry at being the only white token person many places I go! Handed in all that ridiculous paperwork and was asked for a co-pay. I explained my secondary insurance which I had handed them, covered the co-pay. She handed me back my insurance cards and at that point told me they do not take the secondary insurance.
Why did they not tell me that when I gave it to them?!! And before I wasted all my time filling out those forms? I immediately left their offices!
So, let’s see that makes two times this month that I have ‘walked away’ from things that have angered me. The tutoring organization that I put in numerous hours of training only later to discover it was run so poorly I was embarrassed to be associated with them and the diabetes dr. appt. I hate stupid people especially when they waste MY time!
Other things going on at the time of this office visit include: Being in physial pain from a minor surgery, Afternoon appointment was only option the provided and I don’t do well in the afternoon so I was already irritated, Not wanting to have to deal with diabetes in the first place and upset with myself for not finding this out when making the appointment.
