DD has seen a speech therapist every other Wednesday at 4pm at an office of a local hospital since December.
I was told at her last appointment that there is always a chance that we cannot keep the ongoing every other Wednesday at 4pm appointment because there may be someone who have had something like a stroke that may need that day and time. I just said okay and pointed out that we can do earlier or whatever come when school is out later this month.
But the more I think about it, the more I'm questioning this. Yes, it may be a difference between a hard-to-understand 6yo and a stroke victim who lost all ability to speak, but is it really considered "okay" for them to knock my daughter out of her standing appointments for a new patient like that?

When I worked in a PT/OT/SP clinic we would schedule peoples appointments for a few weeks, even months in advance. As long as you keep ahead a few weeks by scheduling her appt's (make sure they put it in the book or on the computer) they shouldn't try to put someone in that slot... b/c it's taken. I'd question that next time you are in!!
