Dumb Twat

I know I went into it knowing it was going to suck but...I couldn't have imagined all the shitty Dr ratings would be so agonizingly obvious the 1st visit. The Dr doing my pre-op physical here in town is a social reject...not even kidding. She is loud (coming from me you know this has gotta be an exceptional case of the louds!) and abrupt and clearly has no idea how to talk to people. I dunno wtf is going on in Canada that you can live in the capital city of BC and only the bottom of the barrel Drs accept new patients and I am sure it is some sort of punishment for them b/c they all seem to be complete dicks. (Her ratings online are atrocious and Donna stopped seeing her...and Ayla went once and said FORGET IT)

After she asked me a few Q's I make mention of the fact that having a sit down job for the last 3ish yrs has really made an obvious negative impact on my issues...before the words were even out of my mouth:

DUMB TWAT: Well you should be happy to have a job....blahblahblah...you can get up and walk every hour, jump in your car and drive to Dallas Road and walk! Walk Walk Walk....drive to Esquimalt to the walking path and walk... [this drivel went on for a very long time]

ME: I am actually happy to have a job, I worked hard to get it - that is not the issue....

cuts me off and goes on and on....I could not be bothered to tell her I usually walk a lot...but have injured my heel and bought a Bike to Nowhere machine...nothing I said would be heard and it really did not matter b/c I am never going back after the pre-op appt.

She continued to blather on for quite some time about NOTHING to do with fuck all....
until I finally tell her I will not be sending my records down as I want to keep my PR doctor...then she refocused on that for about .85 secs and was gone out the door hollering Byyyyyyyyyyyye as she left...fml. Really? I dont need coddling...but stick your obnoxiousness in your ass.
Ugh.
I am dreading my appt on Monday...I am considering wearing headphones. (HAHAHA Not really but that would kick ass) I will be sure to share a great post about that visit...

Love the new Sam Roberts...::sigh:: Can't wait to see him in October....

I am so appreciative I have what I think is a great GP. She listens, she is open to alternate views and suggestions and she refers to specialists if something is out of her realm.

this is exactly why I refuse to give up my Dr in Powell River...b/c she doesnt suck and is awesome...these Drs are rare...hold on to yours Kelly...Hey...does she touch your balls sometimes?? Just curious.

"groupie"... uhhhhhh HARDLY.

kelly said...

ha ha. now why would you be curious about that

Cyndy said...

I don't know you and still...we are all curious.

I am curious about EVERYTHING...i think it is more typical for a guy to go to a male Dr for fear of boners in such situations....no?

kelly said...

ok. yes every year, particularly since my testicular cancer scare 12years ago, and here is more than you are curious about...since I am a guy over 40...the other thing too. And like she tells me "be glad I have small fingers"

And your next question would be did I ever get a boner? No, even though she is attractive woman.
I never really though much about male vs female dr's.

u beat me to the punch...I was gunna ask you about prostate exams next hahaha depending on how u answered the balls question :)

haha @ small digits - AMEN!

male vs female I guess depends on each person...ive never gone to see a male Dr for any type of exam of a girly nature - im sure I would endure one like i do with a female (spirit leaves my body etc) but if i have a choice i pick girls...for me personally i can handle female dynamic better than i can male...example if a woman gets snitty with me its different than if a male does (in the Dr/patient realm) in regard to my reaction...this was more of an issue when I was younger...now at 40 i dont think i would respond much differently but I am just used to girl docs...
do not ask me how i feel about the GB surgery coming up and the inevitable nudity involved.

I have a male doctor, as he was the only one I could find accepting patients when we moved here. He's okay, better than he used to be, but still not too great in the bedside manner department. And I don't really think he listens to what I am saying, so I just have to plan on not getting any serious ailments.
