Have you ever complained about a therapist?
I'm at my wits end with the Speech therapist we were assigned. She is the best friend of the coordinator so I think any complaining on my end will not result in anything. My son only has 3 months left before he moves on to another agency's services when he turns 3 so it isn't much longer we're going to have to deal with her but I'm tired of playing her games.
First of all she never wanted to work with us because we are out of the area she usually works in. It is about a 20 minute commute for her to our home which is not a whole lot. We've worked with her since November, she's cancelled at least 3 times that I can think of. If I cancel 3 times I lose my services. Plus she's been over a half hour late at least once without even calling to let me know she'll be late. My son and I do like to go out places so we sit around waiting for her only to have her cancel when we could have been doing an activity.
I know another family she works with and her excuses for cancelling never seem to match on the same exact day. One minute she's sick, she has something personal to do, and she seems to have a very ill young daughter. I'm not saying she's lying, I hope she wouldn't make up a lie about her child being sick but she uses that very often with us and the other family I know.
I personally think she's either lazy or just as I mentioned before sees us as an inconvience. I personally don't care if we don't see her again but it's cheating my son. She's cancelled the past two weeks. I asked her would she be making those hours up and she said no, she has too many clients to make up missed appointments. Speech is his biggest issue so its sad he doesn't seem to get help.
