Insult to Injury - Some advice please...

Ladies -

I am trying to schedule an appointment with a perinatal group and left their nurses 5 messages over the past 4 days. No response. Is this normal? I was referred to them by an OB so its not that I would be wasting their time.

There are not a lot of perinatal specialists in the area and I have a bad history with my previous OB group. I even tried to switch OB doctors and scheduled an appointment. Next thing I know, his receptionist calls back and says he is not available AFTER scheduling the appointment. She had this tangy dissatisfied tone in her voice that I just assumed was about something else. Now with all this going on, I think it's because of my issues with my previous OBs!

This is so disheartening. Anyone had any of these experiences?

This is getting out of hand. Call the front desk and ask what the policy is on returning phone calls. Then burst into tears, you have every right at this point! You are a human being, your baby was important, and the doctor is someone YOU employ, YOU pay to help (and to care). I'm mad for you right now! Call the front desk

I called and asked them not to forward me to the nurses line to schedule the appt. Someone was around that could book it for me so now it is all done! June 14th I go see the doc.

Glad you got your appt made, but geepers!  Hopefully you get a good vibe off them when you are there.  I don't know how I'd feel having my doctor not return my calls, so if this is their M.O. idk...kinda scary
