WEll! I HAVE TO TYPE THIS IN ALL CAPS BECAUSE MY BLOODPRESSURE MUST BE AT NEAR DEATH LEVEL!!!!!
I AM OFF SCHOOL TODAY FOR A SNOW DAY AND WAS TAKING THIS OPPORTUNITY TO TIE UP LOOSE ENDS AND MAKE APPTS WITH THE PSYCHOLOGIST AND TOUCH BASE WITH THE SURGEON, ETC.
WELL, I CALLED THE SURGEONS OFFICE WITH A FEW LITTLE QUESTIONS AND THE @#!!@ THAT ANSWERED THE PHONE WAS SO HATEFUL TO ME!! SHE ACTED LIKE I WAS THE DUMBEST PERSON ALIVE AND WOULDN'T EVEN HALFWAY ANSWER MY QUESTIONS!!!!!!!!! DO I WANT TO PUT MY LIFE IN THE HANDS OF PEOPLE LIKE THAT!? I DON'T THINK SO!! I MAY BE FAT, BUT I AM NOT STUPID!!!!
Okay, so I have calmed down a bit and I got right on the phone and called another surgeon! I told the woman who answered the phone that I had an appt with a surgeon already but that they were very hateful to me and could she give me some info on Dr. Kramer. WHAT a SWEET woman! She gave me all kinds of info and an appointment that is a week sooner than the one that I have had with the other doc since DECEMBER!!!!!
So, what I would like to ask you guys... did I do the right thing or did I let my emotions take control? Here's a list of pros and cons for the new surgeon.
Pro: he's closer to my house
he's a PPO provider
he's got nice people who work for him
he's just lost 50 lbs himself
he's ABSB member
he requires more medical stuff before surgery
Cons: he only does open rny
he's only been doing gastric bypass since march, but he has already done 80 surgeries
So... what do you think?
Help me...I'm very perplexed!
