I love my kids' pediatricians office. Well, I love everyone but the receptionists. It wouldn't be a Ticked Off Tuesday post if someone wasn't ticking me off, right?
In order to make appointments for well visits, I need to call the office between 2-3 months before the needed date. You have to keep calling back till they start booking dates. If you wait too long, you can't get in to see the doctor you prefer. Sometimes I can't even get in to see a doctor and have to a nurse. (I love the nurses but once a year I would like to see a doctor.) I know when the schedule can be made isn't the receptionists' fault but the fact that the receptionists make you feel like you are bugging them is their issue. I once called the wrong peds office (with a similar name) and knew immediately that I had the wrong office because they were way too cheerful and helpful. I really like the doctors and nurses at the practice but the receptionists' attitudes and the difficulty in getting an appointment is ticking me off and making me seriously consider switching practices.
Feel free to vent what is ticking you off this Tuesday or leave a link.
