The lovely Dr. G actually gave me a hard time when he finally called after 2 pm. Although the endoscopy center nurse and anesthesiologist called me this morning as the day-after-scopes check in call, he blamed me for calling all these people -- just not true, and though I told him, it didn't seem to matter. Then he wouldn't let me have the next test near my house -- I had to go an hour away, and wait more than a month for an opening. I got no apology for the bruises on my neck or for not telling me on Friday that there had been a problem during the scopes -- he said he thought the anesthesiologist told me. In the end, I fired him. I don't know what I'm going to do next, but I know I'm not going to be in the hands of someone who thinks bruising is okay, no apology or explanation required.
I kept thinking today about what I would say to one of you if you called and told me this story about scopes and bruises and waiting a month for an MRI when you're sick. I'm pretty sure I'd have told you to find a new doctor. So I will. Jennifer
