I got there about 230 and waited until 4. I was checked in by the nurse who does all the normal check in vitals. I have a fever of course despite my 800 mg ib profin I just took.
Rather than calling me back after the time waiting, the nurse yes through the waiting room "girl with a sore throat? Sore throat girl were ready for you!" Hands me off to another nurse "hey here is the girl with a sore throat"
I lost it and started to bawl. This isn't just any sore throat. I've had a high fever for a week. I have spots on the back of my throat. My throat is swollen!!! They have my chart they know my name! I was humiliated. Can you imagine being someone in that waiting room and hearing that??
So I told the nurse I was offended by that and I have a name this isn't any sore throat. The head nurse apologized really condescending but I let it go because I just want to be seen and get some antibiotics.
So my nurse, crystal comes in. She is super sweet, take a look and says "omg ya I can see that stuff on the back of your throat! I'll get the doc in right away"
Doc comes in says "say awe" for two seconds and says he sees nothing. I ask him to look again because my doc, his nurse and I can see it. Doc refused. Then he offers me pain killers (narco??). I explain to him I don't take pain killers. All I want is some antibiotics and to be on my way. He keeps pushing pain killers refuses antibiotics. So doctor leaves and crystal comes back in.
I tell her he hardly looked and said There was nothing wrong. She looks again and says well it's really clear I'm not looking that hard. Then she looks into my ear and says that's getting red to to make sure I take sudifed. And then she came back in with freakibg pain killers "doc said you would want these". And apologized again for the whole thing.
That was the most horrible experience I've ever had seeking medical care.
