Does anyone else see a specialist and come away wondering why you went to see him/her for all the good they do for you.
There are three that my husband sees and I come away wondering why we went.
One in particular on our last visit told me if there was no change in my husband at the next appointment just cancel. He is a Geriatrician treating my husband for alzheimers. Never thinks to ask how I’m going or if we need help at all.
I got to talk to people who work at Alzheimers WA yesterday at a fund raising event. So caring, not only about my husband but me as well. I am now thinking of going to see them if I feel we need help as they deal solely with dementia issues unlike a Geriatrician. I did think of changing specialists but having spoken to these people yesterday , they will be my assistance from now on.
Are people becoming more unwell? I ask because waiting rooms are always full, appointments are always weeks away. I had to make an appointment for another ultrasound on my shoulder at the local hospital, the 29th of November before I could get in , and this was only the end of October when I called in to Hospital, didn’t have to make an appointment last time just sat and waited Absolutely no vacant spots in the car park either had to park way out in the street and walk about three blocks back. The local hospital doesn’t charge pensioners for these small services probably why its now always packed.!
