I like nice doctors

So about a month ago, I called to schedule a doctor's appointment with a doctor that I hadn't been in to see before. Thus, I gave the girl on the phone all of the appropriate/pertinent info that was required, and was told that I had an appointment on Monday, October 27th at 11:00 am. And I, being the obsessive compulsive person that I am, confirmed the date AND the address TWICE. So I figured I was good to go.


I showed up at the doctor's office today to discover that no, they did not have my information, and no, I did not have an appointment.


This perturbed me greatly, seeing as how I had confirmed said appointment TWICE and had taken off work and driven to Bountiful and all that. (Not to mention had provided my social and other info that magically disappeared. Don't even THINK about trying to steal my identity peeps.)

Luckily, this doctor is a nice doctor. He agreed to see me anyway. And he was super nice and had a great nurse and didn't take too long. AND, he totes hooked me up with some samples so I wouldn't have to spend as much dinero on my prescription. Bless his heart.

I happen to like nice doctors. (Though this experience does compound my OCD just a little bit. I'll prob be calling the office next time to make sure I have an appointment. I'm a freak, what can I say?)

Know the feeling! One reason I love my insurance company, Kaiser, is that they send a postcard AND call (a recording, but still...) two days before to remind you of the appointment. One less thing I have to worry about.

Also? I miss my doctors / dentists in Bountiful! Glad it worked out!
