View Full Version : My Allergy Dr. and his Office Personnel

I received my third allergy injection today. I was perturbed because the allergist was faxed two weeks ago and never responded to the fax. I needed a prescription decongestant. Then after I was given my injection and waited for 15 minutes to see if I had a reaction. The nurse didn't even bother to look at my arm and it was itching. They gave me the shot in my arm where I could not see it. Then I told them before not to schedule my appts. before 9 AM, and they scheduled it for an earlier time. I had to have it changed. Unfortunately, this is the only allergist I can go to at this point of time because of the insurance plan I am on. I can see now that I am going to have to watch these people like a hawk! Sorry, I just had to vent. This has been bothering me all day today and I had to get it off my chest.

Sometimes the doctor doesn't know what his staff is up to. I actually was responsible for a major staff change at one doctors office. Staff ignored my calls, I couldn't get my meds. This went on for 3 weeks. I made an appointment and talked to the doc. The next time I went the staff was gone and new people were in place.

You just never know

I agree with Nonna . make your doctor aware of the issues you've been having with his staff. The chances are pretty good that he does not know about these issues and once he becomes aware, he will do something about it. Best of Luck

Peace and Blessings

Things went better at the allergist this week. I think it was because I got the more competent nurse this time. My appointment for next time was made later in the morning and she shot me in the arm in an area where I could see the shot.
