Today was strange. I had a doctor appointment about 90 min away. I am not feeling great partly because normal migraines and partly because thank you threw up most of last night. I was called back for the height/weight/drug test (pain doctor) and I let them know that some medications might not show up as strong as they should because we are fighting a virus and I have had bad migraines that made me throw up. Thirty seconds after I sat down they called me and said the doctor can't see me. It has never come up before, but apparently they will not see patients if they have a bug. I have never had a doctor's office tell me that being sick means they won't see me. I understand that he doesn't treat that problem, and I actually think he may have a health problem that puts him at greater risk of getting a virus, but it just seemed strange. WHen I told them yesterday I had a migraine and was sick they said it wasn't a problem (the reminder call). At least they know that I showed, that I didn't act oddly or nervously about the drug test, etc... It just seemed really odd. Esp since if I had called this morning and told them that someone in the house had the flu they would have charged me for not showing up!! I am going to have to have them do some things for me outside of office hours because I need the forms for the patient assistance programs filled out. I was waiting until this appointment but I cannot wait until my next appointment to get it started. (I am thrilled to learn that lidoderm has a program! They are so expensive but so helpful!) Is this odd or is it some new thing that docs are doing now that I am out of the loop on?
