YOU'RE FIRED!!! **Why I am changing drs in red** **Why she needs to be "fired"**
My son's dr is terrible. I have been interviewing and finally found a new ped, set up the appt, dealt with insurance and now I'm ready to fire his current dr. I can't decide how to do it. Should I be kind and gently explain the problems or should I storm up there like a raging bitch?? What do you thing would be the best way to handle this? We will NEVER go back there so I'm not above burning some bridges in the process ;)
**Why I changed Drs**
When ds was born I tried to bf but it was really painful. I ended up eping when I came home. At around 2 months I got baby back to the breast. I could tell something wasn't right so I tried to schedule a weight check bc I knew he wasnt gaining well but didn't really know why. The dr wouldn't see us and said for me to wait until my next appt (a month away). I ended up taking him to a LC who immediatly caught the tt. She also weighed him and he had lost a lb between 2-3 months bc of the tie. I was very upset and called the dr demanding she clip baby's tie. She did and now he is gaining well. He is on the small side of the percentiles but now he is gaining consistantly again. He is still trying to play catch up from his lost weight. She diagnosed him with FTT at 4 months (he had his tie clipped at 3.5 months). Developmentally he is on target, even a little advanced in some areas. He is alert, active and happy. The dr has been sending him to specialists all over town bc of the FTT diagnosis. They all agree that he is doing fine and eventually his weight will catch up. This whole situation has made me very irate. That is why I really want to go in there and raise some HELL.
**Why I feel she needs to be "fired"**
I don't want to go quietly into the night because I want her to know why I am leaving. Maybe this will help her improve her bedside manner. She is young and inexperienced. I am hoping that some constructive feedback would help other patients and help her to be a more effective dr. I am not saying I need to storm in there like a bat out of hell (though I would like to) but I do feel like the problems need to be brought to her attention.
