Estoy Frustrado...

On August 12th we went to the doctor to get a referral to an eye doctor for Emmy because her left eye turns in. We followed all the proper procedures and hoops for our insurance. Went to that ridiculous doctor, waited forever, and got a referral. (Or so I thought).

Today, almost a month later was Emmy's eye appointment. We loaded up the car, got to the doctor, checked in, only to be told that Emmy couldn't be seen because she didn't have a referral. What!! The doctor we saw on August 12th set up this appointment for us. The entire purpose of that appointment was to get a referral per our insurance, and yet a month later only at the time of the appointment we find out they didn't actually send a referral at all.

It was a lovely way to waste an hour. So now we get to go back to the doctor again and repeat the exact same thing we did on August 12th and hope we get an actual, proper, referral this time. I'm so over health care BS. It should not be this difficult. My 2 year old daughter has an eye that crosses-inward. Who knows how that's affecting her but it's getting worse. We need someone to see her.

We already rescheduled with the eye doctor without the referral because if we didn't book today we were looking at a wait time into December. As it is her next eye doctor appointment is October 31st.

Then as an added bonus our tire was flat from two nails. So we waited over an hour for our tire repair.

Fun times today.

My goodness, you guys certainly seem to have the best "luck" when it comes to dealing with doctors: Hopefully you don't have to deal with this mess the next time you go.
