The Waiting Game

Sick and Scared, and Waiting, Waiting, Waiting, the latest article in the New York Times‘ Being a Patient series, examines the plight of a patient left to wait on test results, for an appointment or to get a return phone call, the medical culture that supports this, and some doctors’ perspectives on the problem. Make sure to look at the graphic on a day in the ER.

    I read this article and it just made me so sad. Having been through the ER shuffle before you just feel like a victim. I had one Dr. in the ER one time come into to my “room” and say “so you have a migraine, we don’t give drugs so what do you want me to do for you?” I asked for another Dr. It should not be that way.

    Take care
