Thyroid appointment

So, last Wednesday I went into my endocrinologist's office to discuss my recent ultrasound. I opted to meet with his partner, so I could get my results quicker.

The best laid plans of mice and men......

He only had the radiologist's report and not the images. When I asked my teacher about this, she said it was typical for doctors to do business this way. I think it's stupid. Anyway, after reading the report, this endocrinologist now wants to see the images. He said he would order them and see me in a month.


The whole reason I went to the imaging center to have my thyroid scanned in the first place was so I didn't have to wait until March to have my endocrinologist do it in his office! THEN, I made an appointment with his partner so I wouldn't have to wait to hear the results! NOW, I'm still having to wait until March!

My teacher says it only takes a day or two to get images, so I'm going to call the office back and be a squeaky wheel again. They're going to be sick of me.

Oh brother.


Everyone's crazy... said...

Jodi! email me and let me know where you had your study done. I might be able to twist some arms and get some movement for you. At least from the Imaging Center side

Silly Shannon. :)

Thanks, B. I really appreciate that. Actually, the imaging center is the place I want to work at in the future, so I think I'll lay low and not draw attention to myself if ya know what I mean. :) It's really just the endo's office that's the problem...thanks though! :)
