Doctors Listen Up,

Dear Neurologist-of-mine,

I am going to have to fire you. The first time I thought it was your "style" and you didn't know me well.  The second time you cleared Botox thru my insurance so that gave you a point or two (more on that later). This last time was the last time.

I took 2 hours off of work, then I worked thru lunch for 2 days for what? NOTHING. After waiting around for you for a total of 1 hour I was hoping we could talk for more than 12minutes. But I get that my "migraines" are chump change to you when you have surgery to attend but they are most certainly not that to me. I came to you with problems regarding my new insurance company, my meds always require extended authorization via YOU. I came to you to talk about how the generic doesn't work for me like the "actual brand" does. I came to tell you that the daily med you have me on is not helping. I then told you how I am at the end of my rope.

Now here is the good part...... you stared at me while I talked, interrupting me to say things that I just said.... fun! You have to leave the room twice and then this "migraine survey" you had me fill out you did not even glance at it, just stuck it in my file. IF you had read it you would know that I answered that my life revolves around my migraines, it causes me to miss out on things, that my pain level is maxed out.....but you didn't read it. Then at like exactly 12 minutes you told me this.....

* Stop taking my daily meds, nothing works for me (great thanks, informative)
* Asked if I take vitamins for the millionth time (I Do)
* Told me to buy a new herbal supplement and when I asked if it would make me nauseated you replied "maybe, most things seem to make you feel that way" (thanks for that)
* Then you told me you were CUTTING BACK my most important med I get, the ONLY thing that helps from 18 pills a month to 9!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I could use 9 in a week.

Lastly, the Botox treatment that you cleared thru my old insurance....I even asked you face to face "I will only have to pay a co-pay right" you said YES! Well....... for those lovely 21 shots in my head that cost over $3,000...... you BILLED ME for $1200. Yup, not paying that. It didn't even work.

So thank you for not listening to me saying I am miserable, Thank you for then taking away medicine that helps and thank you for pushing me out the door in 12 minutes.

So sorry to hear he is such a lousy Doctor. Praying you will find a better one very soon, and not suffer too badly in the meantime.

I'm so sorry, Nicole! That is so frustrating. Praying for a new Dr. who will listen to you and give you the things you for your headaches.
