I called to schedule my usual appointment with my psyhiatrist, who I’ve been seeing for over four years, and the receptionist told me I’ve been reassigned! Because she took another position and now only sees patients one day a week! But, they haven’t assigned me to anybody else, yet, so they’re going to have to find someone and then call me back.
Im really frustrated. They always only prescribe me three months worth of medication at a time. I’m not allowed to call and schedule an appointment until two weeks before I run out, because of the way their scheduling software works. So I only have two weeks worth of meds, and now I don’t even have an assigned doctor! I should have been told at my last appointment this was going to happen. I should have been assigned to a new doctor already!
I go to the public clinic, because it’s cheap and they do a good job at the actual treatment part. The group therapy programs are amazing, and the staff all really care about the patients. Nobody is in it for the money. But the downside is that they’re frequently overbooked, understaffed, and disorganized. I have to really keep on top of these guys.
