Anybody out there? I just got a nasty note from Physical Therapy for not showing up for my appointment August 13th. On August 12th I was in the VA hospital to see a Urologist for a Cystoscopy that only took me 8 MONTHS to get. I was bleeding each time I urinated back in January 2015. I went to the VA Hospital in Portland and spent 12 hours being tested there. The attending ER doctor said my name had been given to the two Urologists on staff and that they would contact me for further tests. It took them 8 months to schedule that Cystoscopy. 8 MONTHS.
While waiting for my Cystoscopy my phone rang with an automated recording reminding me of the physical therapy appointment the next day. I gave me the option to cancel which I took. Now I’m being reprimanded for not showing up or cancelling. Bullshit!!!!!!!!
What the hell is wrong with our VA Medical Services? My diabetic doctor quit on me yesterday and I don’t even have a primary doctor. I called the phone number on the nasty gram card and waited 45 minutes without ever getting through or being able to talk with a human being. Things are very very screwed up at our VA. I finally hung up and got online to VA Messaging Service to write my Temporary Primary Doctor a note informing her of my need to vent. I am not a happy camper right now. Who knows what sort of service awaits me in Boston? 😦
