I sent a message (via MyChart) to Dr.Seropian’s office early Friday morning to start the process to schedule my consolidation chemotherapy treatment. I knew I wouldn’t be able to start this week, but figured next week would not be a problem. I also called to cover my bases. I received a call back from someone in the office who said they would call me as soon as they figured out the best time for me to be seen. Fine.
End of the day Friday, nothing.
And then the long weekend. And yesterday (Tuesday) I’m back to work and although I had a dream Monday night that they couldn’t see me until November (love those anxiety riddled dreams) I forgot about it until 5:00 p.m. when I realized I hadn’t heard anything. I called, even though it was after hours, so I cold at least leave a message. I spoke to someone in the office who said she would get the message to someone right away and they would get back to me as soon as possible. I thanked her and even said I didn’t expect a call back that day and tomorrow would be fine.
I just realized it is 10:00 – and still nothing 😦
Just sent another message (the nurse who responds to the messages is very efficient and quick to respond, although she is not the one who schedules).
When the medical system causes more stress than the disease and the treatment – there is something wrong with the system.
